For $350,000, you get an old , an café service station, an abandoned motel, and a small house.
Johnson first drove by Cabin Creek decades ago, and he’d to have it. Folks believed he was mad.
“The couple who ran the cafe, and owned the town, served the best chicken fried steak in the state,” said Joan Lippett, who used to frequent Cabin Creek and lives in Byers.
But back in the 70s, something bad occurred at Cabin Creek.
“There was a murder there”
That’s when Cabin Creek’s fate as a ghost town was secured.
So these buildings sat absolutely empty everything just, literally, there was nobody here.
He once had big plans for the town. But now his wife has bigger plans: retirement.
“We’re looking at Idaho or Montana I believe. We’re ready to get out of town even farther than this,” Johnson said.
