At the time of this writing, an auction for the Village of Johnsonville, Connecticut, is five minutes from wrapping up. The highest current bid for 62 square acres of this historic northeastern village? About $1.2 million. What will the high bidder get if they manage to buy themselves an entire town?
That's right, you're not just buying any old town either. Johnsonville is a classic slice of Americana that someone can actually purchase. According to the listing page, the property is available for mixed-use zoning which means that whoever owns the land can redevelop it however they want.
I just refreshed the page and the Village of Johnsonville was sold for $1.9 million. I wonder what they're going to do with the town?
So, you can't own this piece of history. But you can definitely do some interesting research with this cool site that brings you back to the Titanic. Check it out.
