'A Christmas Story' house sold in Cleveland ahead of film's 40th anniversary. Here's what's next.

It may still be spooky season, but a Christmas icon in Ohio just sold.

A deal for the "A Christmas Story" house has been reached after the house and surrounding properties were on the market for just under a year, according to a Tuesday Facebook post by the house's current owners.

No details about the sale are listed in the post, including the identity of the new owner. The post did state that the house and its accompanying museum, which is open to the public, will remain in operation during the transition and that the deal will be finalized in November.

The purchaser will receive 1.3 acres of land and five buildings across seven lots in the Tremont neighborhood of Cleveland, Ohio, according to the original listing.
