BUFORD, Wyoming (CNN) – If you’ve always dreamed of owning your own town, you may be in luck. Buford, Wyoming is for sale.

The town, with its gas station and convenience store, cell phone tower, post office boxes and five buildings, is up for auction Thursday, with bids starting at $100,000.

With a population of one, Buford has been dubbed “The Nation’s Smallest Town,” said the auctioneer, Williams, Williams & McKissick Companies.

The town has about 10 acres of land, much of it fenced, according to the auction house.

It’s located about halfway between Laramie and Cheyenne, Wyoming, and is the second oldest town in the state.

The auction lot includes five buildings, including a three-bedroom house, the gas station and a cabin now being used as a tool shed.

A snow plow is being sold separately.
