May 4, 2011: George Reeves' Birth Place Torn Down

Reeves' House The house in the Wright County town of Woolstock Iowa, where "Adventures of Superman" TV star George Reeves was born, has been torn down despite attempts by Superman fans to have it restored.

    A demolition crew tore down the century old home where George Reeves was born in 1914 late last week. Reeves and his family moved to California soon after he was born. A group of Woolstock and Wright County residents have been trying to raise money to restore the residence to its original condition but after years of standing vacant and in a dilapidated state, it was time to tear down the home due to safety issues.

It's understood that a memorial marker will be placed at the site in the near future.
