South Dakota ghost town up for sale, at reduced price; Swett can be had for just $250,000

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 tells the Rapid City Journal ( ) that she's put the town back on the market, at a reduced price of $250,000.

Swett is southeast of Rapid City. 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.
