No Market for Hobbit Homes

Lord of the Rings fans may have to look elsewhere to find authentic homes modeled after the Shire found in the J.R.R. Tolkien books. The developer of this unique community, Ron Meyers, is now in financial ruin and he’s placed blame on the current real estate crisis.

It looks like this development was in trouble before the housing crash as only one home was sold since 2006. Maybe he should turn it into an amusement park?
