Monday, July 21, 2014, 7:42 PM - If you have $1.5 million (U.S.) lying around, you could become the new owner of Aladdin, a small town in northeastern Wyoming with a population of about 15.

Included in the sale is 30 acres of land and 15 buildings -- including an historic, 118-year-old general store still in operation.

Rick and Judy Brengle are the current owners of Aladdin. The couple bought it 28 years ago and say running it has been a full-time job.

Aladdin has no government and the Brengles want to take some time to relax after working around the clock to keep the town going.

Judy says there have been "several interested buyers" but many people aren't keen on working seven days a week.

Last year, the town of Buford, Wyoming (with a population of one) sold for $900,000 and was renamed PhinDeli after the brand of Vietnamese coffee the new owner sells in his convenience store.
