Utah Ghost Town Listed For Sale

WOODSIDE, Utah (UPI) — A Utah real estate broker said a ghost town is being sold for an asking price of nearly $4 million with a herd of free-range llamas included.

Mike Metzger, of Bridge Realty in Price, said his clients, the Pogue family, are selling the ghost town of Woodside, which includes water rights, partial mineral rights and a herd of free-range llamas the Pogues brought in a few years ago, the Deseret News, Salt Lake City, reported Wednesday.

“It includes the service station, the geyser, some of the old buildings from the town and about 650 acres that is straddled alongside the Price River,” Metzger said of the ghost town.

“It’ll take a little bit of fixing up, as you look around,” Metzger said. “It hasn’t been in service for a few years, but it’s a classic piece of Americana that isn’t available anywhere else that I’m aware of.”

The broker said the property could be reinstated as an official town.

“You would need to reinstate the charter, to make it an official town, but that’s all that is required,” he said.
