Someone In Phoenix Is Selling A Fence That (Might Have) Belonged To Barry Goldwater

Posted By on Tue, Jun 4, 2013 at 11:15 AM

If you've ever wanted to own a disputable piece of semi-Presidential history, then I've got the deal for you!

It appears that some gentleman (lady?) in the Phoenix metropolitan area has a fence that supposedly, used to surround the home of renowned Arizona senator and Presidential runner-up Barry Goldwater — and it's for sale!

Thats one hell of a fence right there.
  • Craigslist
  • That's one hell of a fence right there.

This fence, like Senator Goldwater himself, is one of a kind. You can own a little bit of history & add historical value to your home.

The late senator, known to some as "Mr. Conservative," served five terms in the U.S. Senate and was the 1964 Republican nominee for president.

Although that campaign ended in a landslide for incumbent President Lyndon Johnson, Goldwater is widely viewed as a prime force in the rightward tilt of U.S. politics in the decades that followed.

Peggy Goldwater died in 1985 after 51 years of marriage. Goldwater died at his Paradise Valley home in 1998.

HISTORY FOR SALE — BARRY GOLDWATER - Remember this great man and his famous quote? "The income tax created more criminals than any other single act of government."

Of course, Goldwater was also quoted in saying that "the radical right has nearly ruined (the Republican) party," but that's neither here nor there, really.

The fact is, there's a fence for sale that may or may not have belonged to Barry Goldwater. If you want it then it's apparently up for grabs to the best offeror.
