6 Stubborn Nail Houses

In Pixar's new film Up! a homeowner refuses to sell when development moves in to the neighborhood. This situation occurs quite often in real life, and the remaining property is called a "nail house" because it sticks out like a nail among the newer (and almost always bigger) buildings. deputy dog has the stories of six such property owners. Shown is the home of Edith Macefield in Seattle (featured previously at Neatorama) which was festooned with balloons recently as a promotion for the Pixar film. http://deputy-dog.com/2009/06/6-extraordinarily-stubborn-nail-houses.html

It's not a house but for years and years there was one strawberry farmer who wouldn't sell his land to Disney. There would be the Disneyland hotel the parking lot that other hotel Disney bought and one random strawberry farm.

He must have died because now you have have Downtown Disney, California Adventure and no strawberry farm.
