A businessman is looking for a buyer for his village in the southeast of South Dakota.
The price is $400,000.

Lance Benson is the sole owner of the unincorporated hamlet in Bennett County.
According to him, he bought the hamlet in 1998, and he give it to his ex-wife when they got a divorce.
He got it back in 2012 and started selling it last week.

In 1940s, there used to be a post office, some houses, a grocery store, and 40 residents.
Now there is a bar, three trailers, and a house in which Benson and his current wife live.
He decided to leave the village because he wanted to focus on his own business.

The hamlet is like a shell of the one that used to be, but the bar, Swett Tavern is still offering heartwarming services.
As the only bar within a ten-mile radius, local cowboys and wheat farmers gather together in it.
Gerry Runnels, a local patron said, "This place is just at the end of the highway and at the beginning of the Wild West."
