A tiny town in Wyoming, advertising itself as the smallest in the
US, has been sold by its only inhabitant in worldwide internet auction.
Buford was purchased by an anonymous Vietnamese buyer after 11 minutes of frenzied bidding.
The sale of the south eastern Wyoming town, which comes with a
convenience store, gas station and a three-bedroom home, attracted
online viewers and on-site bidders from 46 countries.
The new owner flew to Wyoming for the auction, according to Williams & Williams, the auction house handling the sale.
"Owning a piece of property in the US has been my dream," the Vietnamese businessman said in a statement.
The 10-plus acres of land also includes a mobile phone tower and a
car park that a lorry company uses to switch trailers at night.
