Your wish to own a town can be granted-- if you have $1.5 million to spare.
Welcome to Aladdin, Wyo. Population: 15. Yes, the town is named symbolically after the riches-seeker in the folktales of "Arabian Nights." Judy Brengle's husband had bought her the town as a gift after their kids left for college. It's now up for grabs, via a handwritten for-sale sign.
Formerly a coal-mine hub, the town now sees motorcyclists or travelers en route to Devils Tower.
The new owner could inherit:
-A bar (Although, you can drink anywhere on the 30 acres)
-A functional general store along Highway 24, with a famous, historic "Liar's Bench" on the porch
-An outhouse for the General Store, since there's no indoor plumbing or sewage system
You could find your whole new world in Aladdin, or like what happened in a neighboring town-- purchase and rename your newly acquired piece of the West. Buford, Wyo., which was purchased in 2013 for $900,000, is now called PhinDeli Town Buford and boasts one resident.
