• Short Summary

    A look at the 'town' of Millican - general store with local amenities attached - that is for sale.

  • Description

    Titles read: "TOWN FOR SALE" (Dublin issue).

    Oregon, United States of America.

    Various shots of the 'town' of Millican that is for sale. It is actually just a large general store with post office, petrol station and airport attached. A sign on the side of the store says "Population 1". The current owner, William (Bill) Rahn, is also the local fireman, policeman and dog catcher.

    We see Bill demonstrating all the duties that go with the 'town' ownership. Final shot shows him putting a notice on the Millican town sign reading "This Entire Town For Sale".
