Since I’m semi-old and mean, this is the perfect setup for me! I can grab my shotgun, get on my horse every morning, and patrol my town for Socialists. Only challenge would be selling the idea to the mail-order bride. They too often arrive with expectations that aren’t reasonable.
It’s got Hippie Hangout written all over it!
Get everyone to works the mines, while they work their minds!
I watched that other, longer video. There’s a lot going on with that place! Very interesting! And, it’s a great buy, if you don’t mind living alone, and eventually getting weird.
It has Manson Family written all over it.
Seems there was a bidding war for this ghost town and it sold over list at $1.4 million and closed on Friday the 13th! LOL!
