California Ghost Town on Sale for $225,000 on Craigslist

b_250_0_16777215_00_http___kmasnewsradio.com_images_obgrabber_2013-11_f796dd1540.jpgJeff Potter (NEW YORK) -- When Tim TenBrink of Susanville, Calif. visited a small bar in the mountains in the '70s, he didn't imagine he would become the bartender and the owner of the ghost town that contains it. But he did. The year was 1975, and he and his friend Jerry Manpearl of Santa Monica, bought Seneca, Calif., for $60,000.

"They bought it on a hunting trip when they visited this remote little bar in the mountains and found it was for sale," explains TenBrink's nephew, Jeff Potter.

Potter, from Michigan, is now helping his uncle sell the property, along with the bar and the liquor license, on Craigslist for $225,000. Potter explains that it's time to sell the ghost mining town because his uncle "is getting on in years" and it can be a "treacherous" drive to get to the place. So he helped his uncle put up a Craigslist ad.

"Want to buy a ghost town with a bar and liquor license?" the Craigslist listing asks. "Expand it into a unique getaway! Perhaps the most remote 'restaurant' in Northern California."

About 100 miles from Lake Tahoe in the Sierra Mountains, it has 10 acres on both sides of the Feather River.

"And it has a liquor license for the old shack bar that's still there," Potter says on his website.

Only a few other places in the county have liquor licenses, Potter says.

"And there are 3 old cabins that could possibly be put into repair for rustic use," the listing states. "Lots of old Chinese-era mining is still visible through artifacts and landscaping."
