See the home that was the inspiration for the movie Up.

Edith Macefield’s private home served as inspiration for the animated movie Up. The original homeowner, Edith Macfield, passed away when she was 84 years old.  She always stood up against a corporate offer to buy her property for the large mall near Seattle, Washington. Ms. Macfield was offered one million dollars and was continuously pressured by the company, but she refused to sell her home. 

Residents such as these are known as owners of a “nail house,” exemplifying the commitment to withstand the development of large projects. As a result, companies must build around their houses. Her legacy and her home live on as new owners handle the uptake and care of the property. Tourists occasionally tie colorful balloons to the fence surrounding the house, memorializing Ms. Macfield and her noble fight.
