According to Fox, the entire town of Story, Indiana, is up for sale—although, the “town” isn’t much more than a small collection of historic buildings that the current owner has fixed up for modern use.

The focus of the town, founded in 1851, is the old general store, which Rick Hofstetter has turned into the Story Inn, a bed and breakfast. Hofstetter bought the town in 1999 but wants to sell it to someone younger who will maintain it in for the future.

Last year, the California town of Cerro Gordo was sold for $1.4 million.

Situated in the Brown County State Park, the town is probably most fit for tourism, or perhaps a Westworld-style amusement park. Interested buyers can contact Hofstetter for terms of sale.
