On our way to Carlsbad Caverns National Park in New Mexico, we were quite surprised to see such a cute abandoned motel! We don’t come across motels like this very often with its gorgeous adobe style design, so stopping to take a look was definitely inevitable. Now according to our research, this motel is located in a very small town that only has about 7 residents (according to a 2010 statistic) and back in 2008, the town was put up for sale on Ebay. It eventually sold for $1.55 million dollars at auction to an unnamed buyer who outbid the nearby city of Carlsbad…now that’s quite an interesting history! What do you think of towns being sold on Ebay? Leave a comment…we would love to hear what you think!
