Looking to make a serious statement with your next property purchase – why not buy an entire town?


It just so happens there’s one up for sale in the US at the moment, though in fairness, it is the smallest town in the country.


Buford, located between Cheyenne and Laramie in southeast Wyoming, is famous for having just one inhabitant, Don Sammons. Sammons plans to retire from managing his businesses at Buford and move on. The auction is set for noon on April 5.


Buford traces its origins back to the 1860s and the construction of the Transcontinental Railroad and had as many as 2,000 residents before the railroad was rerouted.


Assets up for sale will include a gas station and convenience store, a 1905 schoolhouse that has been used as an office, a cabin, a garage, 10 acres of land, and a three-bedroom home.
