The town of Buford, Wyoming will go up for auction on April 5. Yes, the entire town. Population: one. The starting bid is $100,000 and that includes 10 acres, a house, garage, gas station, cabin, schoolhouse, and convenience store. From Time:
Once a semi-bustling town of about 2,000 residents that started in the 1860s, the rerouting of the Transcontinental Railroad sealed the town’s fate. Buford’s most famous moments all date back to the 1800s. As the second-oldest town in Wyoming, U.S. President Ulysses S. Grant visited in 1869 and outlaw Butch Cassidy robbed a store there about a decade later (he was caught and served time in Laramie). Since Cassidy, Buford hasn’t made the news much. Even still, (sole resident Don) Sammons has said “it was a great life for me and my family” and hopes others will want a similar experience. There is no word on where Sammons will choose for his next stage in life.
