Cerro Gordo

The American dream: Spend a lot of money purchasing an entire abandoned mining town, which you rule over like Colonel Kurtz and live happily ever after. Now, that dream is a bit closer to reality for anyone who wants to buy a ghost town but doesn’t want to spend a million dollars to do it. For you there’s Cerro Gordo, a genuine California ghost town that is currently on the market for $925,000.

24,000 square feet of ghost town is included in the purchase price for Cerro Gordo, as well as a hotel and several old homes. Plus mining rights, so I guess there’s an off chance you might become a modern day mining baron even if you’re only purchasing this thing to kick your paintball league to the next level.

Check out the Cerro Gordo sale listing here, at the extremely concise website GhostTownforSale.com. And yeah, it’s probably haunted, what of it?
