The Johnsonville, Connecticut ghost town is officially off the market! If you missed it, a 62-acre “ghost town” was auctioned off this week. You can read all about the town here. Experts were saying that the land, which includes several buildings, could sell for as much as $3 million dollars- but that was not the case. The final bid that settled the sale was for $1.9 million dollars. The auction was supposed to end at 1pm yesterday but was extended an extra twenty minutes because of a flurry of last minute bids.
No word on whether the ghost that supposedly haunts the land will come with the sale.
If the sale is finalized within the next thirty days as it’s supposed to- the questions will remain- Who and why did someone pay nearly $2 million dollars for this land? For the sake of saying they are the mayor of their own town? Do they have plans for the haunted abandoned town? We’ve heard speculation of a spa retreat, an elderly home/village, and a vacation spot.
Or, if you’re like us here at CTBoom- We want a year round haunted attraction village. Kind of like Salem but less tourists and more ghost hunters.
We’ll keep you updated.
