The actual Dyersville, Iowa place where “Field of Dreams” was filmed in 1989 and has been a tourist attraction ever since is for sale — $5.4 million.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports (linked here) that the site, owned by Don and Becky Lansing, includes the baseball diamond, a two-bedroom, 1-bath house (with that front porch), six outbuildings, and a parcel of land totaling 193 acres.

The realtor handling the sale is former Brewers pitcher Ken Sanders, who has a license in the state of Wisconsin. Sanders can be contacted at (414) 803-4220 or e-mail at kensanders20@gmail.com

Universal Studios had the diamond built in just four days during the summer of 1988. Since that time, the Field’s owners have preserved it for guests at no charge. In an effort to keep it pristine and agrarian-based, they have minimized commercialism and taken on much of the land’s care and maintenance themselves.
