House where Walt Disney was born up for sale

It may be debatable whether a house recently put up for sale on E-Bay is a cultural landmark. But there is no doubt the North Side Chicago house was home to one very special person.

The four-bedroom, frame house was where Walt Disney was born 105 years ago this week.The house was posted yesterday (Thursday) on E-Bay by owners Radoje and Barbara Popovic. Bidding starts at 280-thousand dollars for the home, built in 1893 by Disney's father, Elias.The Popovics, who bought the home for 190-thousand dollars in 2002, say they listed the house on E-Bay because they hope to find a buyer willing to do something special with a building of historical significance.Born December 5, 1901, Walt Disney lived in the house for four years before the family moved to Marceline, Missouri.
