Are you in the market for a ghost town? Today's your lucky day. 

An ad recently posted on Craigslist offers the chance for a modern-day pioneer to purchase the small gold mining town of Seneca for the low cost of $225,000. 

Included in the cost is the "town" consisting of Uncle Tim's Gin Mill bar, three small rundown cabins, a river, an island and 12 acres of land. The only catch is there are no utilities, so a generator is necessary for power. 


Jeff Potter is the nephew of one of the owners and he's trying to sell it. He join the show with more about this remote business opportunity.
