For Sale: Small South Dakota Town, Bar Included

For Sale: Small South Dakota Town, Bar Included
RAPID CITY, SD -

A businessman is selling his small, southwestern South Dakota town for $400,000.

Lance Benson is the sole owner of Swett, an unincorporated hamlet in Bennett County about two hours southeast of Rapid City. Benson, who owns a traveling-concessions business, put the town on the market last week.

Benson says the town used to have a population of 40 people decades ago, as well as a post office, a few houses and a grocery store.

Now, the town is just a bar, workshop, three trailers and a house. He and his wife still live there.

He says ownership of the town concentrated to a single person over the years. Benson bought it in 1998.

This article has been revised to reflect the following correction:
The story incorrectly stated that it was a southeastern town. This has been corrected.
