Are you in the market for a ghost town? Today's your lucky day. 

An ad recently posted on Craigslist offers the chance for a modern-day pioneer to purchase the small gold mining town of Seneca for the low cost of $225,000. 

Included in the cost is the "town" consisting of Uncle Tim's Gin Mill bar, three small rundown cabins, a river, an island and 12 acres of land. The only catch is there are no utilities, so a generator is necessary for power.
