Location: Porter, Indiana
Status: Still Available
This deceptively large 5-bedroom farmhouse, built 130 years ago by Swedish immigrants, is still absolutely free. That is if you promise to restore it, and its four outbuildings, back to their original state. The entire farmstead is located in the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, a state park. But the Historic Landmarks Foundation of Indiana is offering a 30-year lease to anyone with a viable restoration plan, and a means to finance it. Call 574-232-4534.
