Had a closer look at the community's economic stats - the town has been in steady decline for awhile. I spoke to some locals and the honest ones think the town will disappear once the current elder residents die off.

So something tells me the current owners are trying to abandon ship before it's too late.

If you are looking for a challenge, try this one

The Baker Hotel in Mineral Wells, Texas. It is wonderful and creepy. A grand dame of a hotel sprouting up out of the flat Texas plains in a scruffy town, abandoned, sad, and lonely.

Plus, assuming the town is in Sk. or Ab. nearly all revenues come from the bar. A good chunk of bar revenues are from VLT's. The gov't can, and probably will, reduce them to zero soon.
