I have checked with a couple of Realtors and they have not heard that it was for sale.

I didn't see a for sale sign.  I am curious as to what the spaceship is currently used for.

It's been out there for a long time, someone was going to make a game room out of it years back as well as a hamburger joint.  I think it's just being used as a transit trap now.

I know a guy out there that might know who owns it.

I'll find out and let you know.

On 276, between Quinlan and Rockwall.  If I remember right, it is almost in the middle of the two, maybe a little closer to Rockwall.

Sorry it has taken so long to get back on here, with the Hollidays and work i've been pretty busy.

The family that owns it also owns the the land that it sits on.

They live on the street behind there, I thinks it's called maurice st. anyway they are a wealthy spanish family that live at the end of the street that is protected by a large metal fence.  They are not interested in selling it and offered no explanation as to why.

Drove by the spaeship the other day, at a quick glance it looks like it has been gutted.  Wonder if they have plans for it.

Anyone know if it is OK to stop by and take pictures of the Futuro house? I live in Fort Worth, but was thinking of taking a day trip out there to take a few pictures of it.
Thanks!
