    'Field of Dreams' Farmhouse Restored, Opens to Tours

    Baseball fans and movie buffs will soon be able to tour the home where the 1989 movie "Field of Dreams" was filmed. But before it opens, we have a sneak peak. When you walk inside the home, it's like you're stepping into world of the Academy Award-nominated movie. The "Field of Dreams" home has been restored to look just like it did for the film. Thousands of people from across the country have visited the set each year, but the house has always been off limits. Visitors can now check out the kitchen, living room and baseball artifacts scattered around the first floor. Tours of the home are set to begin on Nov. 1. Only the first floor will be open to the public because someone actually lives on the second floor. (Published Tuesday, Oct. 25, 2016)

    The owners of the "Field of Dreams" movie site near Dyersville, Iowa, say that for the first time they will allow tours of the house that overlooks the famous baseball field.

    The Dubuque Telegraph Herald reports the group Go the Distance Baseball announced Monday it would open the lower level of the house, which was used as a backdrop for much of the 1989 movie starring Kevin Costner. Until now, the house has been closed to the public.

    Although there's no cost to tour the baseball diamond or walk to the corn-fringed outfield, it will cost $20 for adults and $12 for those younger than 18 to see the house.

    Denise Stillman, president and CEO of Go the Distance Baseball, says about 100,000 people visit the site annually.
