I Tried To Buy A Whole California Town. It Went Medium

Nipton, California, sits just 63 miles from Las Vegas but is worlds away from its gilded, spangled skyline. Surrounded by craggy, gray hills and swathes of nut-brown desert, the unincorporated town hugs the border of the Mojave National Preserve. Amenities include: a general store, a five-room hotel, a restaurant, and a few RV parking spots. And you can buy it for $5.2 million.

I found Nipton after searching online for towns for sale around the country. There aren’t many. Cal-Nev-Ari (named for the first three letters of the three states it’s close to) and Swett, South Dakota, are two others on the block. But Nipton had a certain folksy charm that appealed to me. Curious about how you actually go about buying a town, I headed to California to check it out.
