Nestled down an offset of the North Fork Feather River, the tiny town of Pulga sits waiting for its new caretakers. The town was recently put up for sale, and attracted national attention.
Pulga’s current owner, Lorraine Paloma, put the 63-acre town up for sale with a price tag of $499,000 earlier this year, but had no success attracting a buyer. On Oct. 25, the Chico Enterprise-Record published a story about Pulga’s listing, which immediately went viral.Write comment (2 Comments)
