WATCH: Buy Your Own Ghost Town in Oragon! For Only $3.8 Million
Ghost town of Tiller, could be yours fast and clean. Here is the deal: the entire 225 miles (362 km) in south of Portland, is yours including six houses, an apartment, industrial and commercial lots, a gas station and a nice store. For an extra $350,000, you can have the old school too.
Aside from the family that owns, and is now selling the town, only 250 people live in the area. The owner accumulated the town lot by lot as other families left. Ghost town happened after the decline in timber harvesting and the closure of the town’s mill, according to the estate agent.
In Tiller itself, only two residents remain. A former teacher who lives next to the school, and the pastor of the local church. Neither of their plots is for sale.
Garrett Zoller, the owner of Land and Wildlife, the real estate firm selling the town, said ghost town could also be an opportunity since part of the town has already been divided for a 13-acre (5-hectare) subdivision.
According to Reuters Zoller said he had “fielded calls from would-be buyers ranging from Chinese investors to people interested in starting medical facilities and hemp-growing operations.”
