Garryowen , Mont.

Price: $250,000 opening bid
Population: 2

Garryowen is barely a blip on the road map, a 7.7 acre lot consisting of a gas station, the 15,700-square-foot town hall, a 2,900-square-foot mixed-use building, and a picnic area. So what’s the draw in this auction slated for August 15? Historic Garryowen has tourism dollars written all over it. The Battle of Little Big Horn, also known as Custer’s Last Stand, began here. (The name Garryowen comes from the Irish marching song of Custer’s 7th Cavalry).

Garryowen is also well-placed geographically, near the Wyoming line, midway between Mount Rushmore and Yellowstone Park.
