DYERSVILLE - One of Iowa's most famous landmarks is for sale. The Field of Dreams near Dyersville is on the market.

The owners say they're ready to retire, so they're looking for someone else to continue the popular tourist attraction.

The Field of Dreams has been like a child for Don and Becky Lansing. Now after 20 years, they are ready to move on.

Becky Lansing said, "We have absolutely been given a gift. The gift of a national landmark being in our front yard."

The Lansings welcomed millions visitors over the past two decades.
Visitors say there is something magical about seeing this picturesque site for the first time.

Christina Patnode said, "It was neat because I mean it's exactly like how you see it in the movie."

There is a small souvenir shop, but there is nothing glitzy or glamorous here. The Lansings say that's intentional. This isn't Hollywood, it's Iowa.

Becky Lansing says the field means something different to each person who visits. For some it's about baseball. For other's it's about reconnecting with their fathers. For one family the Field of Dreams is a place for healing.

Becky said, "A young couple who lost their twin boys at birth came out here on the one year anniversary of the death of their children in hopes of reconciling with them. A long with them they brought their infants baseball mitts."

It's people like that whom the Lansings say makes this field what it is. And now they say it's someone else's turn to experience the magic.

All 193 acres of the property are for sale.
They Lansings are not revealing their asking price
ABC News reports that price tag in five point four million dollars.
