California town up for sale on Craigslist

News
In this Feb. 20, 2008 file photo, pedestrians cross Miner Street in Yreka, Calif., Feb. 20, 2008. Supervisors in the far Northern California county where residents are fed up with what they see as a lack of representation at the state capitol and overregulation, have voted in favor of separating from the state. The Siskiyou County Board of Supervisors voted 4-1 on Tuesday, Sept. 3, 2013 for a declaration of secession. The vote appears mostly symbolic since secession would require approval from the state Legislature and the U.S. Congress, but supporters say it would restore local control over decision making. They want other rural counties in Northern California and Southern Oregon to join them in the creation of a new state called the State of Jefferson.

When Tim TenBrink, of Susanville, Calif., visited a small bar in the mountains in the '70s, he didn't imagine he would become the bartender and the owner of the ghost town that contains it.

But he did. The year was 1975, and he and his friend Jerry Manpearl of Santa Monica, bought Seneca, Calif., for $60,000.

"They bought it on a hunting trip when they visited this remote little bar in the mountains and found it was for sale," explains TenBrink's nephew, Jeff Potter.

Potter, from Michigan, is helping his uncle now sell the property, along with the bar and the liquor license, on Craigslist for $250,000.
