Location: Lynchburg, Virginia
Lynchburg is home to five National Historic Districts featuring wide, tree-lined streets and hundreds of remarkable homes—from decaying Georgian Revivals, to perfectly restored Queen Annes. Unfortunately, some houses here—such as this 1875 clapboard, with its rusting red metal roof—are in serious disrepair. To remedy the situation, the city's Homesteading Program is looking for qualified buyers willing to rehabilitate and maintain Lynchburg's most endangered properties. This 1,191-square-foot home is available for just a buck. For more information, call Laurie Kennedy at 434-845-9011.
