Here's How You Can Buy a Small Town
NEW YORK (MainStreet) -- Investing in stocks and bonds is chicken feed compared with the newest rage: investing in your own small town.

Billed as the "Nation's Smallest Town," Buford, Mont., is on the auction block for April 5. The hope among the town's principal owner -- and sole resident -- is that a buyer will show up and buy Buford, lock, stock and barrel.
According to a "buyer's list," the town is small in stature but large in amenities, once you get your arms around the idea you're buying an entire town out West.
