Walt Disney’s Chicago Birthplace still for sale

disneychicagohome

Disney fans with cash to spare have a chance to own some unique history – the home where Walt Disney was born. Walt Disney’s father Elias built the Tripp Avenue two-story house himself in 1892. Walt Disney was born in an upstairs bedroom in 1901. It has currently been split into a two-unit rental.

In 2006 Disney’s birthplace was up on ebay, but that sale never closed. Perhaps its an indicator of how soft the housing market still is, that this unique home is still for sale. The price has now dropped below $200,000.
