    The US city of Buford, Wyoming, populated by one person has a curious history. The person who used to live there, Don Sammons, worked simultaneously as a refueller, vendor, street cleaner and mayor. In 2012, the city was sold at auction for 900 thousand dollars to a Vietnamese businessman.

    Photo: In this Jan. 4, 2011 photo, the 60-foot high granite pyramid Ames Monument is seen in Buford, Wy. The monument, built in 1882, is dedicated to Oakes and Oliver Ames, who pledged money to help complete the first transcontinental railroad.

    Take a look at seven cities, with a population of only one person.

    Have you ever been irritated by your neighbors? People who live in these seven cities have no such problems as they are the only ones who actually live there. While some would consider this a heaven for introverts and people tired of unnecessary conversations, many would soon feel abandoned in these places. Would you agree to pay such a price for tranquility?
