Wishes he had known Bliss, KY could have been bought for $600
Comments re photo 37742 Bliss Bypass widenedBob Koch writes:
This is an interesting photo for me, as my grandfather Mont Murrell was born in Bliss in September of 1883. When i first saw the Google map of Bliss it looked like some places described as a "wide place in the road". Now it looks as though it is *wider*. I wish I had known it could have been had for $600.00. What an opportunity lost. Thank you for the information in the magazine. - Bob Koch, Brier, WANote: Even those who live here marvel at the purchase, which was even less than the legendary Cherokee Allinson paid for Dirigo, KY and Cherokee got his town at a steal. The real less is that if Kim Bassinger had been as astute in buy towns as these to real estate baron, she have done better in the game. Some of us know how to buy towns. -CM
