Al Capone’s Old Home is For Sale In Chicago
Real estate like this doesn't come around too much, but here it is. According to WGNTV.com, Chicago's biggest and most known gangster Al Capone's old 2-flat home is for sale in the Park Manor Neighborhood. It's pretty cheap too, you can have this piece of Chicago history for the low price of only $109,900. Can you imagine the history of this home? What all went down there? It seems that most of us will never know. The house has even been mentioned in old news reports on Capone back in the '20s.
The home was originally purchased in 1923 by Capone's wife Mae. When it was purchased by the Capone family it was only 18 years old and the selling price was a mere $5,500. Al Capone, his mother and his wife all lived in this home. Being half Italian and a huge fan of the Sopranos, if I had the cash I would have already made an offer. You can check out the house on Google maps, the address is 7244 Prairie Avenue. Re/Max currently has the listing if you're interested.
