Indiana Landmarks hopes to relocate historic Mishawaka farmhouse

*If you’re willing to pay to relocate a 150-year-old farmhouse.

Looking for a new (really old) house?

The historic farmhouse at the corner of Cleveland and Gumwood in Mishawaka is available for the low, low asking price of $0, according to a report from WSBT.

The catch? The new owner must pay to have the house relocated.

The 2,100-square foot farmhouse is sitting on land that is being redeveloped and the Northern Regional Office for Indiana Landmarks is hoping to save this piece of history, rather than see it torn down.

The home, which used to house Flourish Boutique, was built in 1865 by former gold miner Daniel Ward. 

Indiana State Rep. B. Patrick Bauer sold the house and surrounding 20 acres of land to Great Lakes Capital in December 2013, according to WSBT. 

The cost to move the house is estimated at $75,000, but that number could be much higher depending on where the house is moved and the number of powerlines that have to be taken down.
