California ghost town for sale for less than $1M

- California makes headlines yearly for the state's rising housing costs, but in case you're in the market for something a bit larger than a house- an entire California town is for sale for less than one million dollars! 

Cerro Gordo, a 19th-century mining town, is listed for sale for $925,000 by Bishop Real Estate.

The land even has its own appropriately named website: www.ghosttownforsale.com

The central California city is east of Fresno and just outside Death Valley National Park and has been owned by the same family for decades.

According to the listing, the townsite has "24,000 square feet of buildings remaining, including the incredibly historic hotel, the Belshaw bunkhouse, hoist house, super intendents house- nearly 22 buildings in all. The property expands over 300 acres of patented mining claims and the site has been extremely well protected from diggers."
