A Pennsylvania town has offered prospective home-owners a bargain: a free house, if they take it away. East Manchester acquired the three-bedroom ranch-style house for the land underneath, which it needed for future expansion of municipal facilities. Officials deemed it cheaper to give the house away than raze it or refit it for rental. Anyone who can move it and clear the land can have it, they said.
