Another Tiny Wyoming Town Goes Up For Sale
Here's a gift for someone who has everything: A tiny town in far northeastern Wyoming named Aladdin.You won't need a genie in a bottle to buy it. Just $1.5 million gets you 30 acres and 15 buildings, including a 118-year-old general store that's still operating.Rick and Judy Brengle bought the town 28 years ago and now want to move on from the full-time job of running it."We bought this place because I had empty-nest syndrome," Judy Brengle said. "All our kids had gone to college, so my husband bought me a town."Aladdin doesn't have a government population count but about 15 people live in the town on a state highway midway between Devils Tower National Monument and Sturgis, South Dakota, famous for its huge annual motorcycle rally.Recreation opportunities abound in the nearby Black Hills and Bear Lodge Mountains. Aladdin isn't the only Wyoming town to hit the market. Last year, the southeast Wyoming town of Buford, population 1, sold for $900,000 and was renamed PhinDeli Town by its new owner to promote a brand of Vietnamese coffee sold there.
