An Oklahoma-based company auctioned off Buford, Wyoming Thursday afternoon. For a winning bid of $900,000, the property will move to the control of two unnamed businessmen from Vietnam. Wyoming Public Radio’s Rebecca Martinez has more.

Bidders and spectators from around the area and around the world flocked to Buford, Wyoming today/yesterday for the auction of what’s been called “The Nation’s Smallest Town.”

Four months after the doors of the Buford Trading Post were shuttered, the parking lot was once again filled with cars and trucks. Williams and Williams, the Oklahoma-based auction house, re-opened the Trading Post to sell of Buford’s 10 acres and five buildings, which include the service center.
