There's a US Ghost Town for sale on Craigslist for $350,000

Ghost town for sale! 

Sure, it sounds like the opening of a Stephen King novel - for all we know the pen wizard might be settling down at his well-worn desk to start a draft on the idea as we type - but the five-acre US town of Cabin Creek Colorado is up for sale right bloody now on Craigslist. Because you can buy anything on the internet if you look hard enough.

The fixer-upper project of one James Johnson, he's helped restore the electrics, water, plumbing and security of the 'town', but now wants to head off travelling. 

It's got nothing to do with the fact that the town hasn't been able to attract much business since a couple who owned the plot were murdered in the seventies by some travellers they took in. Not one bit.

Here's what $350,000- (£265,000) worth of Ghost Town gets you.
