The Internet Was Unable To Buy Itself A Ghost Town After All

The Internet Was Unable to Buy Itself a Ghost Town After All

Briefly: It was a longshot, a dream, a Google Doc-enabled fantasy. In the end, 82 people used an online spreadsheet to pledge over $US122,000 for a ghost town, but alas, it was not enough. Some lucky buyer (I assume it was one person) snatched up all 62 acres of Johnsonville, Connecticut for $US1.9 million.

The auction has been taken down but one of the would-be crowdfunders snapped this screenshot before the link disappeared forever. After all the hype this one sale generated, let's hope that the new owner of Johnsonville likes visitors.
