That’s right, if you happen to be traveling to Wyoming in April, then why not take a look at a couple of auctions because you may be able to purchase an entire town for $100,000 (£64,000)! There is a slight catch though – the population of the town is 1 thus meaning it is the smallest town in America. However, for a 1 person town there is still quite a few facilities there. Just some of the facilities are; a petrol station, a convenience store and an old school-house! Oh, and don’t forget about the 10 acres of land!
The town is called ‘Buford’ and is the second-oldest town in Wyoming. It hasn’t always had a population of 1 and actually managed to reach a population of just over 2,000 in the late 1800’s! Unfortunately, the population plummeted when a railroad started to completely bypass the town and then the population started to decrease even more from that point onwards.
Don Sammons is the only resident and self-proclaimed mayor of the town and he will be auctioning off the town on April 5th. He moved from Los Angeles to Buford with his family in 1980 and he ran the convenience store & petrol station until the end of the last year. He will be attending the auction and said “It will be a sad day, but it also will be a very interesting day in a new chapter in my life and I’m ready for it!”
If only I had $100,000…
