Hey, Billings Residents, This Town Could Be Yours if the Price is Right
OK, Billings' residents. If you ever wanted to own your own town, this could be the perfect opportunity for you. Not to mention, it's not too far away from here.
Just in time for holiday shopping, an entire South Dakota ghost town, complete with its own watering hole, is on sale for $250,000.
Apparently potential buyers have expressed interest from the United States and beyond since first the property first listed for sale, though several written offers fell through and the price dropped from $399,000 to $250,000.
I guess one of those offers included a call from a Russian movie production company that wanted to film there.
Swett's population peaked at 40 residents in the 1940s when it had a U.S. Post Office and grocery store.
Swett's most recent residents included town owner Lance Benson, his wife and dog, who put the community up for sale last year before losing it to a bank
The tiny prairie domain also comes with a new town sign, courtesy of the state, to replace the previous one that was riddled with bullet holes.
What a deal you say? This town could be yours if the price is right.
