For sale: (1) California ghost town

boingboing net

Nestled between two national parks, Sequoia and Death Valley, there is a ghost town for sale. For a little under a million dollars, you could own a piece of the American West: an abandoned silver mining town founded in 1867 called Cerro Gordo.

Located in Owens Valley near the town of Lone Pine, the $925,000 property comes with over 300 acres of land, mineral rights, and no shortage of peace and quiet. There are 22 structures on site, including a historic hotel, bunkhouse, saloon, chapel, and museum—plus all of the artifacts that come with it.

“The site has been extremely well protected from diggers, artifact looters, and Mother Nature herself,” reads the listing, posted on a website specially created for the property that's aptly named ghosttownforsale.com. “Restoration has been undertaken on most of the buildings, and the rest are in a state of protected arrested decay.”

From its listing:

Held by the same family for decades and only available for purchase now. The site has been extremely well protected from diggers. artifact looters and Mother Nature herself. Restoration has been undertaken on most of the buildings. and the rest are in a state of protected arrested decay.

The site is historic as the first major mining camp south of the Sierra Nevada. Cerro Gordo is a privately-owned Mining Town located in the Owens Valley near Lone Pine, California. The town was the silver thread to Los Angeles, being partially responsible for its growth and economic development.

Too rich for your blood? Try taking a walking tour of Cerro Gordo before it gets sold instead.

Hot, dusty, firehazard. Lots of little critters under the building and snakes too. I am feeling that water is an issue but I will go look at the URL to check that. --73.178.xxx.xx

Mustang, TX was for sale last fall for $4 million. It's about 15 minutes south of Corsicana (aka 1 hour south of Dallas on a major interstate), so it's not a bad location at all! :) --96.46.xxx.xx

As an "expert" at living in the gawdforsaken desert, take my advice. DON'T DO IT! :)

And if it was anyplace other than CA it might be different.

The "real" town of "Cal-Nev-Ari" (pronounced Calnevarrie - all one word) on Hwy 95 about 90 miles south of Vegas is for sale for $8 million - but I think she's dropped her price. It's a real town - couple hundred residents, airstrip, a CASINO, motel, rv park, convenience store, WATER, fire department and - a major highway running through to provide plenty of income from traffic fines. LOL :) :)
