Town with no people in the US - level 1, A12
Buford is the smallest town in the US. People know the town because it had only 1 person.
The last person worked in his own shop 10 hours every day. 1000 people visited his shop every day in summer. But in winter, he had only 100 visitors every day.
The man went out of the town and he doesn’t live there now. He lived in the town for 32 years. His house, garage and shop are for sale now. A post office and an old school are for sale too.
The town is high in the mountains and it is on the road between New York and California. In the past, the town had 2000 people. You can see the Rocky Mountains from the town. They are beautiful. The town has also very cold winters and a lot of winds. You can hear winds in the video.
These are the words from the video. It is not easy to understand, because the wind is strong and the man doesn’t speak good. The video is from the time when the last man lived in the town.
“OK, here we are in Buford, Wyoming. Population 1. I think that’s the one. There is the store and that’s about it. That’s it and that's all, man.”
