Buford, Wyoming, the town for sale we mentioned last month has sold for $900,000. The buyers were two businessmen from Vietname.
Until recently, the town’s one resident was Don Sammons, 61, who managed the town’s liquor sales, hardware sales, gas pump and hot dog warmer. Sammons moved months ago, and the phone to the Buford Trading Post has been disconnected.
Buford, featured on “Nightly News” last weekend, is on Highway 80 between Cheyenne and Laramie in southeast Wyoming. The town was originally listed at $100,000. The auction house, Williams and Williams, told NBC News that buyers from more than 70 countries expressed interest.
