The couple who have owned Aladdin, with a population of 15 residents, for the last 31 years has accepted an offer from a group of investors led by an Arizona businessman to buy most of the town.

The couple who owns the town now say that the sale to Rob DeMaranville and his partners will close next April.

They declined to disclose a purchase price.

The deal involves a total of 30 acres and includes a general store in a building built 125 years ago.

Aladdin is located near the South Dakota border on a two-lane highway that leads to Devils Tower National Monument, about 20 miles to the west.
