Town for sale in Wyoming: 30 acres, 15 residents, no indoor plumbing

[Ed. – Think I’ll probably stick with my private-island plan.]

If you’re looking for your next real estate investment, look no further than the tiny town of Aladdin, Wyo.

Located 80 miles northwest of Rapid City, SD, this 30-acre hamlet features a 126-year-old general store and post office, a bar and homes for the town’s 15 full-time residents.

And the whole town can be yours for the bargain basement price of just $1.5 million.

At its peak, Aladdin was home to 200 people, most of whom worked at a nearby coal mine. In the years since the mine closed, the population has dwindled to just over a dozen people.

The town’s owner, Judy Brengle, came into possession of the town 28 years ago when her husband bought it for her as a gift, says the couple’s granddaughter Laramie Noyce. …

The post office and general store, as well a bar, the Brengle family’s four-bedroom home and the property under the town’s trailer park are all included in the $1.5 million price. And since there is no indoor plumbing or sewage system, an outhouse is also being thrown into the deal.
