WILMINGTON, NC - (WECT) - A sign advertising for a "Free House" sits outside one home in Downtown Wilmington. While the Fifth Avenue home is free, you still have to pay to move it.

Leaders at Grace United Methodist Church say they are giving it away because the repairs are too expensive. They want to build a children's playground and a parking lot in it's place.

"The Board of Trustee's decided in January of this year to give the house away, so if somebody wanted they could have a free house," explained Dick Hutter, the chairman of the Board of Trustees. 

Anyone interested in moving the home should call the church at 910-763-5197.
