Buford, WY Sold Overseas

The sale of a remote, unincorporated area in southern Wyoming to a man from Vietnam is now official.

Cheyenne broker Rozetta Weston says the sale of Buford was closed this week.

Located along busy Interstate 80 in southeast Wyoming, Buford advertised itself as the smallest town in the United States with one resident.

It was sold at auction for $900,000 last month to Vietnamese businessman Pham Dinh Nguyen.

Buford includes a gas station and convenience store, a 1905 schoolhouse, a cabin, a garage and a three-bedroom house on 10 acres between Cheyenne and Laramie.

The town, which lies in the Southeast corner of the state, traces its origins to the 1860s and the construction of the Transcontinental Railroad.
