US town on sale for RM6.6 mil­lion

New Straits Times - - World -

PENNSYLVANIA: Got US$1.5 mil­lion (RM6.6 mil­lion) to spare? If so, tiny Re­duc­tion, a com­pany town built to house work­ers at a long-van­ished garbage-pro­cess­ing plant here, could be yours for the ask­ing. The town is home to 60 res­i­dents, down from 400 in its hey­day. They live in 19 brick houses, pay­ing the Sta­wovy fam­ily, pro­pri­etors of the un­in­cor­po­rated vil­lage for the past 70 years. The plant, built by Amer­i­can Re­duc­tion Co, shut down in 1936 af­ter pro­cess­ing waste since the early 20th cen­tury.
