Who Wants to Own Their Own ZIP Code?

Posted By on Wed, Mar 14, 2012 at 3:00 PM

For everyone out there who has long claimed that Tucson would be the best city in the world if they were in charge, here's your chance to not only run a town, but to own it outright.

The tiny town (though I'm going to argue that any place with a population of 1 is, at most, a village) of Buford, Wyoming is going up for auction on April 5. Apparently, the town's owner/mayor/sheriff/only resident, Don Sammons, is ready to move on from his doubtlessly busy political life, with plans to move away after the sale.

For $100,000, you can own a 10 acre slice of life, complete with a house, garage, cabin, schoolhouse, convenience store and gas station — not to mention, your own ZIP code.

Hm. Looks like I just found the perfect place to direct the schmucks we try to run off in the Weekly's annual "Get Out of Town!" issue. If only "tiny hamlet" was something that we could fit into the budget...
