It’s called ‪the Hobbit House around York, Pa., and you can’t help but to look its way when you drive by it. Leslie Klinger got her wish to look inside. ‘I delivered pizza there on occasion. I was sooo excited the first time, they invited me in to have a look. Very kind and generous people,’ she wrote when this History Mystery photo appeared on the York Daily Record’s Facebook page.
