Princeton Is Giving Away 7 Houses

Want a free house? Princeton University will let you choose from seven. But only if you can haul them away.

Princeton is giving away houses it needs to clear away in order to start a new development project. The homes boast details including Victorian scroll moulding and fireplaces.

The catch is that most are in bad shape, with insulation peeking out from the foundation and broken shutters or railings.

Moving a house can cost tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars. And a house-moving expert says they’ll have to be taken apart to move because Princeton is so densely populated.

Kendal Siegrist of Wolfe Housing and Building Movers says the houses can’t be carted away whole because there are too many utility lines, which can cost $10,000 each to move.
