Welcome to Buford, Wyoming.
Formerly sporting a bustling population of two, Buford now only has a single resident. Add that to the fact that it’s located in the middle of Wyoming—the least populated state in the union—and you have one hell of a bad place to vacay.
By last year, the population of Buford, Wyoming, had dwindled to exactly one: Don Sammons, who ran the convenience store, lived in a nearby mobile home and was ready to get out. So he put it up for auction, and Vietnamese businessman Pham Dinh Nguyen bought it for $900,000 — and a lot of publicity. Yesterday, Nguyen announced that he plans to turn the place into an international java joint, which means if northern Colorado succeeds in seceding from the rest of the state to form SoWyo, residents won’t have far to go to get a good cup of coffee.
