If you are in the market for complete town ownership, you cannot beat this price.
|All this could be yours...|
The town is currently owned by one man, the enterprising Lance Benson. Benson is willing to relinquish his town though, so that he can focus on his other business in traveling concessions.
As for potential growth opportunity, the town of Swett wasn't always a tiny town. Swett has shrunk though over the years, as many residents moved to more urban areas.
Like many rural towns in America, Swett has shrunk dramatically over the past century as its inhabitants migrated to urban centers. Once a town of about 40 people in the 1940s — with a post office, a few houses, and a grocery store — the town now stands as little more than a few ramshackle buildings along U.S. Highway 18.
The official population of the town currently is two people: Benson and his new wife. The Sweet Tavern is the beating heart of the area, offering refreshing suds to rogue cowboys and a little added Western charm.
So think about it, one house and one bar, $400,000, and you even get to choose the tagline for the town. Here are a couple free of charge, feel free to use them if you buy Swett:
- Come on down to Swett, where we all like to get a little Swetty!
- Something, something, blah blah blood, Swet and tears!
