Chris Kortlander, who purchased the town of Garryowen, Mont., in 1994, said the sale includes a gas station, convenience store, Subway sandwich shop, living quarters and a Custer museum -- but the contents of the museum are not included, USA Today reported Thursday.
Kortlander attempted to sell the town on eBay for $6.9 million, but there were no takers. The town will now be auctioned Aug. 15 on-site and online by Oklahoma-based firm Williams & Williams. The starting price will be $250,000.
"I have taken it as far as I can with the financial resources I have," Kortlander said. "I believe this location could be so much more than it is if the right person or corporation came forward."
Kortlander said there will be a separate auction on the same day for what he refers to as the "Elizabeth Bacon Custer manuscript collection," which is a collection of letters, notes, photographs and other items compiled by Custer's widow.
