Entire Town of Toomsboro, Georgia Suddenly Up for Sale

Joining Scenic, S.D., Pray, Mont., Henry River Mill Village, N.C., and, most recently, Buford, Wyo. (which just sold to two Vietnamese businessmen for $900K) in the towns-for-sale game is Toomsboro, Ga. With a population of 700, a 1.86-square-mile foothold, a convenience store, a florist, a cabinet shop, and a post office, Toomsboro is largely owned by developer David Bumgardner—who at one point hoped to create a "quaint tourist town"—and preservationist Bill Lucardo. According to the Associated Press, these guys are now awaiting offers on what Lucardo calls "a perfect fit for a movie production company seeking a set or a music company looking for a great venue." They have not named an asking price just yet—stay tuned.
