For Sale: Small town in South Dakota

Posted: Updated:

The owner of atravelingg concession businesses is selling his small, southeastern South Dakota town.

Lance Benson is the sole owner of Swett, an unincorporated hamlet in Bennett County about two hours southeast of Rapid City. Benson put the town on the market last week. He is selling it for $400,000.

Decades ago the town used to have a population of 40 people with 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 over the years ownership of the town concentrated to a single person. Benson bought it in 1998.
