Wanna Run A Ghost Town?

Did the Pleasanton Cattle Drive inspire you to move to a home on the range?

Have $925,000 to spend? Why settle for a measly home, when you could have an entire town! Cerro Gordo, or “fat hill”, is situated on 300+ acres of patented mining claims south of the Sierra Nevada with nearly 22 structures including a hotel, church, bunkhouse, and superintendent’s house.

Source: Nolan Nitschke

The history of the town is something out of a wild west film. Built after the discovery of silver in 1865, the average crime rate was a murder a week! According to the town’s website, they became the largest producer of silver and lead in California and contributed to Los Angeles’ growth and economic development.

Because of its unique history and having been in the family for decades, what happens to the property is important to the sellers. They’ve protected it from looters, diggers, and natural disasters.  Interested buyers have pitched an amusement park and a marijuana town, but the sellers are more interested in someone preserving its story.

If you know California real estate, $925,000 is low for a house, let alone a whole town! Don’t let the old mining ghosts spook you, get to bidding on this piece of California history!
