Unidentified men from Vietnam have purchased Buford, a small town in Wyoming.
The two Vietnamese purchased the town from Vietnam Vet Dan Sammons for $900,000. “I think it’s funny how things come full circle,” Sammons said, referring to his time spent in Vietnam. Sammons is considered the mayor and only resident of the tiny town that sits at an altitude of 8,000 feet.
The town was auctioned off on Dec. 31. Dozens of people came to the auction, including two Vietnamese men. After winning the auction, the men left. No one has been able to find out any information about them. Tonjah Andrews, the real estate broker representing the men, will not comment on the future plan for the town.
Buford is billed as the smallest city in the United States. The 10-acre location along Interstate 80 consists of a gas station, a garage, a three-bedroom house and a cabin.
