Above is a picture of the town of Scenic, in South Dakota, and it's for sale.. there's a train depot, two jails, a museum, a dancehall, saloon and a bunkhouse..

It's 46 acres in total -- 12 acres in town and 34 acres around it -- located about 50 miles east of Rapid City, South Dakota.

The property is posted on, which offers video tours of various locations. Cow skulls adorn the sign for the Longhorn Saloon, which advertises tobacco, lunch and dancing -- in that order.

Since its heyday, Scenic has seen its population dwindle to less than 10 people. Nearly everyone in town is related to Twila Merril, Olsen said.

Since Merill was diagnosed with cancer, the upkeep on Scenic has become too much for the family, he said.

"It's really an interesting place and there's so much history," Olsen said about the town. "All it needs is a little population -- and ingenuity."

So.. what would you do if you owned Scenic, South Dakota?
