The village of Johnsonville, Connecticut, is located two hours away from New York City and Boston. The 64-acre property has been closed to the public for the past 20 years and is now for sale on online auction with a starting bid of $800,000.

The village used to be surrounded with twine mills which were powered by the Moodus River nearby. Thus, the 19th-century village was mainly built to host the mill workers. Time has passed, and the mills became worthless, so the villagers abandoned their hometown.

UPDATE: The town has allegedly been auctioned for $1.9 million.
