If you’ve watched Pixar’s movie “Up”, you may be familiar with this scene, a tiny one and a half story home surrounded by modern commercial buildings. Unlike the movie, Edith Macefield couldn’t just fly away with the home that’s been in her family for generations and that makes her act of defiance so much more remarkable.
Even though Edith was offered as much as 1 million dollars for a small property, this lady stayed firm in her mission.
The developers were as stubborn as she was, so instead of buying her house, they built the mall around it.
Some would say she was just a cranky old grandma, but there is a very sweet reason the contractor who was in charge of walling her in keeps her photo on his refrigerator door.
