If you've got a spare $100,000, you could potentially become the owner of a small Wyoming town that's set to be auctioned off next month by its sole resident.
After more than 30 years of residing in the unincorporated community, town "mayor" Don Sammons says it's finally time to move on.
"Don, 'The Mayor', is retiring after 20 wonderful years in his town," Sammons writes on the website for his business, the Buford Trading Post, a gas station and store. "This entire, income producing, town is for sale; the house, the Trading Post, the former school house, along with all the history of this very unique place."

Some affluent member of ATS should start a revolutionary community here!

As long as we're simply establishing a growing community within the state appearing as law abiding citizens - stockpiling supplies as we see fit - and doing everything under their radar then what reason would TPTB have to invade or imprison us?
A town advertised as the smallest in the United States has sold at auction for $900,000.
Buford, Wyo., is located between Cheyenne and Laramie in southeast Wyoming. Two unidentified Vietnamese men placed the winning bid for the town on Thursday.
As owners of the town along Interstate 80, they will get a gas station and convenience store, a schoolhouse from 1905, a cabin, a garage, 10 acres of land, and a three-bedroom home.
The town has had just one inhabitant, Don Sammons. He plans to retire from his unofficial title as "mayor" of the unincorporated community and managing his businesses, and move on.
