Montana Town to be Auctioned on June 27
LIVINGSTON, Mont. (AP) — A Montana town is scheduled to be sold at auction later this month.
The five-acre townsite of Pray in southern Montana has been on the market for $1.4 million for several months without a buyer.
Pray is made up of a closed historic store, a post office, a few mobile homes and a large commercial and residential building.
Owner Barbara Walker decided to go with an auction because she wants to focus on her photography career. For the June 27 auction, she says, she plans to set a reserve price below which she will have the option to decline offers.
In April, Buford, Wyo., which advertised itself as the smallest town in the U.S., was sold at auction for $900,000.
