Want to own a town? Tiny Oregon community for sale for $3.5M

TILLER, Ore. (AP) In the tiny, dying timber town of Tiller, the old cliche is true. If you blink, you might actually miss it.

But these days, this dot on a map in southwestern Oregon is generating big-city buzz for an unlikely reason: Almost the entire town is for sale.

The asking price of $3.5 million brings with it six houses, the shuttered general store and gas station, the land under the post office, undeveloped parcels, water rights and infrastructure that includes sidewalks, fire hydrants and a working power station. Tiller Elementary School, a six-classroom building that closed in 2014, is for sale separately for $350,000.

Potential buyers have come forward but are remaining anonymous, and backup offers are still being accepted.

neo-nazi group or another hate group would buy it to set up their own little version of paradise.

3. Sounds like a good place for an intentional living community

And with Oregon's cannabis laws, a boon for a group of like minded individuals.....
