Buford Wyoming

Going, going, gone – yes, Buford, the smallest town of the USA has been bought by a Vietnamese at an auction for $685,000. The person wishes to remain anonymous, at least at present.

Buford in Wyoming has a population of only ONE ... and the new owner can bask in the glory of having acquired a slice of the USA in an on-line on-site auction.

The deal comes with 10-acres of land, a house with a cabin and a barn, a cellphone tower and a parking lot. This parking lot belonged to a trucking company which used to switch trailers at night.

The Buford Trading Post benefited from regular traffic which passed through the I-80 interstate highway with Cheyenne situated 50-Km to the east and San Francisco 1850-Km to the west.

The gentleman had flown in from Ho Chi Minh City and was physically present on the site. He faced competition from bidders in Hong Kong, New York, Florida, Kansas and even Wyoming – the bidding began from $100,000.
