Maybe you’ve heard by now that the entire town/unincorporated community of Buford, Wyoming, will be put on the auction block next month, at a beginning price of $100,000. Its sole remaining occupant and “mayor,” 60-year-old Don Sammons, has decided to retire and is looking to hawk all of the town’s profitable entities, including the Buford Trading Post (consisting of a gas station and convenience store), U.S. post office boxes, a Union Wireless cellular tower, ten acres of land, a 1905 schoolhouse, and a three-bedroom home. The purchaser of the former railroad destination will also get his or her own zip code, 82052.
