A Northern Minnesota Ghost Town Could Be Yours For Under $1 Million
Ever wanted to own your own little neighborhood? This one-of-a-kind opportunity is an abandoned Air Force Base for sale just North of Duluth with panoramic views and potentially salvageable structures.
With the asking price of $800,000 you could have your own little slice of opportunistic heaven. The ideas you could come up with for land with over 100 acres are endless. The listing describes it as:
Formerly operated as an Air Force Base years ago and now somebody can bring their ideas, imagination and creativity to create something special. Truly endless possibilities w/ the existing structures, the sewer/water already in place, power, internet, sidewalks and streets. It'd be tough to beat the panoramic views, too! Complete with a beautiful trail system as well. Some structures potentially salvageable. New roofs on some.
Coincidentally, this area is about 10 miles away from Al Capone's Minnesota hideaway. The old Air Force Base has been nicknamed "Lookout Mountain". The area is in Finland, MN which is about 65 miles North of Duluth. The base closed back in 1980 and was one of twenty-eight radar stations built as part of the second segment of the permanent radar surveillance network prompted by the start of the Korean War.
