3. Last House on Holland Island, U.S.A
The lone house on a small part of Holland Island tells a tale of a fierce battle between man and nature. The house, built in 1888, handled itself bravely against erosion along the shoreline on Holland Island for several decades. Despite the last owner’s best efforts to protect his property, the surging waters and weak soil had the last say and dragged his home and land away from Holland Island.
