The Home Alone movie, and its sequels, has become a cultural icon, no question. Now you can buy the prototypical upscale suburban brick home on the northside of Chicago that was used in the film. I thought the agent did a good job of exploiting the home’s fame and recognition to help sell it, in this creative 2.5 minute sales video.


She missed an opportunity to imitate the McCaulay Culkin “Ooh Noo” face at the end. Maybe it’s trademarked. Locals here might get a chance to practice that famous face though, when you see the price. Only $2.4M to own a piece of Hollywood history in Winnetka Illinois. Call us up if you simply must have it. We’d love to help.

Keswick Thelma and South Park -Click to enlarge

No really, there is a town named South Park around here. Here’s a map.


We’ve mentioned this here before. Based on real estate maps, somebody had great ambitions for the town of Keswick. Streets and boulevards are laid out, and remain on maps even now. Today, however, you will find no evidence of a grand town at the current site of Keswick. It’s a dusty shell of an unrealized grand vision.

This came to mind today after reading Dottie Smith’s interesting blog post about Lord Keswick. Lord Keswick owned the big mine. All we are left with today is the big hole in the mountain, and the many problems it is still creating, basically. Where did all the mineral wealth go? Certainly not to the town of Keswick, nor apparently Shasta County in general.

At least the vegetation is growing back at Keswick. It would be fascinating to follow the money though. Did Lord Keswick build castles in England or something? Anyone know?
