Entire Town for Sale

Fancy being mayor of a one-man town? If you have a spare $100,000 you might be able to do just that.

Don Sammons, the sole resident of Buford, Wyoming, is selling the unincorporated community, which spans ten acres and includes a 3-bedroom house, a trading post, and a United Wireless cell tower complete with lease.

'Mayor' Sammons, who has lived in the town for more than 30 years, moved to Buford with his family in 1980. Over the years, family members gradually drifted away from the area, eventually leaving Sammons as the only resident.

Buford, which is located between Cheyenne and Laramie, was one home to approximately 2,000 residents, before the Transcontinental Railroad was rerouted.

It will be auctioned off next month to the highest bidder, who will actually be able to use the quote, "This town ain't big enough for the both of us." Totally worth it.
