Smallest Town?: Population 1 (or 0)

The sign with the population is gone.

[Beckie and Jeremy, 08/04/2022]

The "Pop 1" sign was a key part of Buford's identity. Maybe it was just taken down for a cleaning (thoughtless visitors slap it with stickers), or an updating. Pop 2? 3??

Buford is back up and running. Fully open.

[Jennifer, 05/16/2022]

Buford is just a gas station, and in recent years it had been empty. Now the population must be back up to at least 1.

Tiny Buford

The gas station is being remodeled, with new lumber and a newly built wall. We did our part and filled up with gas, and will stop again to see their progress! No one was there, however.

[Susie Strong, 08/08/2021]

For years Buford had a population ranging between 5 and 1. Now maybe it's 0.

Just drove by, all boarded up. Sad, I have a pic of me here. I liked the tiny town of Buford.
