Edith's House


My last post of 2011 - for Edith.

Do you know the story of Edith Macefield? She owned this little house in Ballard for 40+ years when she was offered a million dollars for the plot. Edith said, "I don't want to move. I don't need the money. Money doesn't mean anything." How strong she was. The world built around Edith and sadly she died shortly after all the construction. Edith left the house to one of the construction workers who had befriended her. It sits looking lonely and small amid the stores and fitness centers but I suspect it has an interesting future.
