South Dakota Town Up For Sale, Again

Monday, November 30, 2015

The southwestern South Dakota ghost town of Swett is once again for sale, and this time the asking price is a lot cheaper.

Swett is home to about 6 acres of land, an empty house reputed to be haunted and a closed bar. It first went on the market in June 2014, for $399,000. It generated interest around the world, but the three written offers fell through for various reasons.

Real estate agent Stacie Montgomery says that she's put the town back on the market, at a reduced price of $250,000.

Swett is just east of Martin. It's not the only town in the area put up for sale in recent years. In 2011, a Philippines-based church bought most of the town of Scenic.
