Anyone Want to Buy This Colorado Ghost Town for $350K?

If you've got a spare $350,000 (£268,670) hanging around, then you could be the new owner of a ghost town in Cabin Creek, Colorado.

James Johnson posted the town on Craigslist, selling nearly five acres of land just 45 minutes outside of Denver.

Johnson originally purchased the ghost town after being fascinated by it - and so he could store cars in the 3,300 square foot garage.

Included in your purchase is an old petrol station with pumps still outside, an eight-room motel, complete with neon sign near the road, a roadside restaurant cafe with an eight-foot 'smokehouse' at the back, an eight-space RV park equipped with water, sewer and electrical, two houses and acres of lush green fields!

What more could you want!

According to People, Johnson bought the town 36-years-ago in the hopes of turning it into a tourist attraction, but his plans have since changed.

A nearby resident who lives in Byers told KDVR that there was a murder in the tiny town in the 1970s, Johnson says that since then the buildings have sat vacant and there hasn't been any activity in years.
