SOLD! Vietnamese Investors Buy WY Town

Vietnamese Investors Buy WY Town

It turns out two-bedroom apartments in Manhattan cost more than the smallest town in America. A pair of Vietnamese businessmen bought the town of Buford, Wyo., for $900,000 at auction today after bidding started at $100,000. Only one person—Don Sammons—lives in Buford, which has a gas station, a three-bedroom house, and a couple of other small buildings all sandwiched on 10 acres of land. Sammons, who has lived in the town since 1980, owned Buford for 22 years and decided it was time to sell it so he could move to be closer to his son.
