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.

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

Smallest Town In America

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

Smallest Town in America

This is now a ghost town. The owner/resident has left. Gas station has a lot of trash. Still glad I got to see it, but I really wish the gift shop was still open.

Smallest Town in America

Sorry to read that the store and gas station in Buford are closed. It's a little place in the middle of nowhere. The gas pumps saved me from absolute misery a few years ago. I was driving cross-country for the birth of my grandson and I miscalculated gas stations. The gas computer in the car went to zero, there was nothing in site in a major rural area, it was cold, and the winds were at 50 mph. I was on fumes and Buford showed up out of nowhere. That town was a Guardian Angel to me.
