Yes, there is a town in South Dakota called Scenic that is for sale with a cool price tag of eight hundred thousand dollars which is just a little more than the price of an average home in San Francisco. For eight hundred thousand dollars you get a saloon, a dance hall, a train depot minus the train, two jails, two stores, and some empty buildings and have less than ten residents.
The town is for sale because the owner has been diagnosed with cancer and they need to sell the town. If you have a lot of money you could maybe turn this almost ghost town into a wild west tourist attraction but it all depends on how far off the beaten path Scenic, South Dakota is and if it is near any big cities.
So if you are tired of the hustle and bustle of the big city, tired of the crowds, traffic jams and high rent and you have always dreamed of living out west in a ghost town, plunk down eight hundred thousand dollars and make your dream come true.
Before you put up that much cash just remember that you will become a landlord and there are ten residents living in town that you will be responsible for. You will be responsible for taking care of their maintenance problems like leaky faucets and over flowing toilets.
