For Sale: Ghost Town.

Got $250,000? You can buy this ghost town in the middle of nowhere:

As real estate ads go, Rocky Bar's is a browser-stopper.

"Always wanted a ghost town?" it asks. "What a way to amaze your friends and family! The entire town of Rocky Bar, Idaho, is for sale, and what a ‘ghoulish' deal it is."

An entire town — yours for $250,000, mineral and timber rights included.

Not to be one of those people who flips out anytime someone says something negative about their home... but seriously, Idaho - particularly the parts where you'll find ghost towns - is beautiful. It's not for people who want big-city action, but it's actually a really wonderful place to live. And no, I'm not a native. Try it before you sneer at it, no?

Let's try again...

downside: you have to pay in potatoes.

Idaho is beautiful alright. So is Montana, South Dakota, Utah. Real party states and all.

Native of beautiful Idaho..
The entire town was not for sale only 1/2 or a little over 8 acres which included the hotel, jail house and yes, timber and mining rights. Be careful! In some of Idahos roughest country, impassible in winter and early spring. Spent many a week-ends in Rocky Bar.
