The Field of Dreams Movie Site just outside of Dyersville, Iowa
was created for the now classic Kevin Costner movie in 1988 on farm land owned by the Lansing family since 1906.
It was so dry that year they had to dam a creek to irrigate the land. They also had to bring in seven trucks worth of sod to create the field.
The Lansing home was remodeled with walls removed to make more space for filming while the family was moved on the other side of the house into a camper trailer.
Today you can visit the site for free and enjoy the same rich green ball field as seen in the movie.
