Own the Smallest Town in America; Buford, Wyoming for Auction by Williams & Williams

Highest Town in Elevation on Interstate 80 and Population of One, to Be Sold

TULSA, OK--(Marketwire - Mar 9, 2012) - Williams & Williams, the premier brand in real estate auctions, will auction the town of Buford, Wyoming, offering potential buyers a rare opportunity to own an entire town. The auction will take place on Thursday, April 5 at noon MDT. Buford is known as the "The Nation's Smallest Town" with a population of one. It's also the town with the highest elevation on Interstate 80 at 8,000 feet above sea level.

Despite its size, this historic town has no shortage of visitors and is a must-see destination for many travelers. Included in this income producing town are five buildings: the Buford Trading Post which sells fuel, snacks and memorabilia, a three bedroom modular home, a 1905 school house (used as an office), a garage and a 1900s cabin (used as a tool shed). Nearby attractions include Curt Gowdy State Park, Vedauwoo State Park and rock climbing area, the 140 year old "Tree in the Rock" and the Ames Monument.

"We are offering a rare opportunity to own a town and piece of American history," said Pam McKissick, Williams & Williams' CEO. "Owning your own zip code does come with perks -- you can be the mayor, sheriff, town council, sole voter or any other position you'd like to create."

Located midway between Cheyenne and Laramie, Buford is the second oldest town in Wyoming, dating back to the construction of the Transcontinental Railroad. Named after Major General John Buford, a hero of the battle of Gettysburg, the town has been visited by Presidents Ulysses S. Grant and Franklin D. Roosevelt and outlaw Butch Cassidy.
