Now may be the perfect time to own your own town.
There happens to be one for sale in Catron County, New Mexico. The Town of Gabriella on 58 acres southwest of Datil was built ten years ago to replicate a town from the old wild west era.
The dirt street town and its 18-or so buildings has served as a movie set, meeting and event venue and similar activities since it was built by hand from the ground up by ownerLarry Iamswho still lives nearby.
Iams has a passion for keeping the historic aspect of the Old West alive, and happens to be handy, so he built the place himself. He hopes the next owner will love it too.
The asking price is one-point-six-million dollars, which also includes a stagecoach.
