Buy the Whole Zip Code?

  • When a nice, big house just doesn’t cut it…

    It’s a buyer’s market, or so they say, but what if you aspire for more than a great deal on a single family house or a condo? What if you want more? What if you want MUCH more? We’ve written about towns for sale recently, but we came across one that we thought needed special attention, so we’ve devoted this week’s edition of Extreme Real Estate to this single “property.” Photo credit: NAI Business Properties

    Serious History

    The commercial and residential complex that comprises Garryowen–population 1–occupies approximately 7 prime acres beside busy Interstate 90 on the edge of the Hunkpapa Sioux Encampment and near the very spot where General George Custer made his famous last stand during the epic Battle of the Little Bighorn in 1876. The itty-bitty town with a big history was named after the old Irish song of ‘Garryowen,’ which was the regimental marching song of Custer’s 7th. U.S. Calvary. Photo credit: NAI Business Properties
