Johnsonville, a village in Connecticut, has been a number of things in the past, including a movie set, theme park and ghost town, but now it is for sale.
Johnsonville was also a textile mill, and now it is on sale for $800,000.
The village was founded back in the 1830s, when it was a mill town for the state's twine industry, and then in 1960 a millionaire by the name of Ray Schmitt bought it, and it was turned into a quaint theme park.
According to Bustle, the attraction was eventually closed in 1994, after zoning officials from East Haddam and Schmitt had a disagreement.
Johnsonville is located about 30 minutes outside of Hartford and a couple of hours from New York City. It sits on 62-acres, according to The Weather Channel.
Johnsonville includes homes, retail space, a post office, as well as some churches.
According to, the starting bid is $800,000. The bid deposit amount is $10,000, and the auction will start on October 28 and it will end on October 30.
The property also has a covered bridge, as well as a wooden dam and a waterfall. There is also 25 acres of land that is suitable for both commercial and residential development.
