Vietnamese Men Buy Wyoming Town

BUFORD, Wyo., (UPI) —  Two Vietnamese businessmen purchased a Wyoming town billed as the smallest in the United States with a bid of $900,000. The town has a population of one.

Tonjah Andrews, a real estate broker hired to represent the men, said they heard about Thursday’s auction for the town of Buford from media outlets and flew to the United States to participate, CNN reported Friday.

Andrews said she would not release the names of the businessmen.

The 10-acre town consists of a gas station, a three-bedroom house, a few other small buildings and a cellphone tower.

Don Sammons, the town’s sole resident, watched the auction but did not bid.

“I don’t know when it will hit me. I’ve lived here half my life. I’m an emotional person and I hope I handle it in an adult manner,” he said after the sale.
