Updated to correct that Buford is in Wyoming, not Montana.
That's the idea behind an auction to buy a Wyoming town with its own trading post, wireless tower and main street.
|A tiny Wyoming town with its own trading post, wireless tower and main street goes up for auction April 5.|
Billed as the "Nation's Smallest Town," Buford, Wyo., is on the auction block for April 5. The hope among the town's principal owner -- and sole resident -- is that a buyer will show up and buy Buford, lock, stock and barrel.According to a "buyer's list," the town is small in stature but large in amenities, once you get your arms around the idea you're buying an entire town out West. Here's a look at what the winning auction bidder gets for "buying" Buford:
- The Buford Trading post, an income-producing convenience and fuel store.
- U.S, Postal Office boxes and a Union Wireless cellular tower with lease (also income-producing).
- Five buildings, including a three-bedroom home, a 1905 schoolhouse (used as an office), a garage and a 1900s cabin (used as a tool shed).
- Approximately 10 acres.
- A parking area previously used by an overnight shipping company for nighttime trailer switches.
