If you are fed up with the way things are working in your town, maybe it’s time to just buy your own.
Sharp-eyed shoppers noticed a listing on Craigslist this week: an entire ghost town for sale.
Cabin Creek, Colorado covers about five acres and includes a gas station, an eight-room motel, a couple of houses and a partially working septic system.
Plus, you can make the rules. Isn’t that how that works? Maybe not.
Anyway, the whole town will run you just $350,000, according to the listing.
About half the cost of a two-bedroom house where I live in Oakland.
Maybe I should do it.
