Location: Barrington, Illinois
Price: Free (Must be moved)
The village of Barrington, Illinois, a suburban community just 35 miles northwest of Chicago, is giving away three historic homes to anyone who can come up with a viable plan to move and restore them. The village will also provide any old-house saviors with $10,000 each to help finance their relocation efforts. First on the list is this 1930s Craftsman. While it’s long been used as office space, the sturdy little house retains its Craftsman character, including original windows and doors, exposed roof rafters, and several interior built-ins. Call Brooke Jones at 847-304-3472 for more information.
