If you've ever fancied living the life of an eccentric billionaire but only had $1 million to work with, the town of Uptop is for you. This 42-acre parcel in the Southern Rockies of Colorado, with views of the Spanish Peaks, holds a well-preserved ghost town full of history from some of the earliest days of the state. Recognized as a National Historic District in 2011, Uptop comes with nine historic buildings and other structures and archeological sites, including the orignal stone depot, chapel, the famous "S-bar" tavern and dancehall, school, barn, plus residential and non-residential cabins. There's even an old Chevy truck that used to run a rope tow for the land's original homesteader.
