Ever wanted to be mayor of your very own ghost town? According to this real estate posting on Craigslist, an abandoned gold rush-era village in Northern California could make that dream come true... assuming you've got the coin to plunk down for the twelve-acre mountain property.
The remote village of Seneca, CA, located near a historic former gold mine, has been in the hands of the same owner since 1970 – when it was a semi-famous site for music festivals, earning it the nickname “Woodstock of the West.” Today, it's got a quiet, serene but very mysterious atmosphere, heightened by the massive trees that have grown up through the floorboards of some buildings.
The owners are now looking to sell the property, which they describe as quite scenic, but the northern mountain path that leads to it (shown above) is said to be “darn scary.” It's also deadly: one wrong turn could end with a 1000-foot plunge.
Check out the listing for more details... but please, serious inquiries only.
