Garryowen Building Complex
The town of Garryowen was named after the old Irish tune, "Garry Owen," which was one of General George Armstrong Custer's favorite marching songs. The auction of the town, to be conducted by the firm of Williams & Williams, includes the Garryowen Town Hall, an approximately 15,400 square foot three-level building containing a convenience store, a sandwich shop, retail space, a U.S. post office and a penthouse residence. Kortlander said that, although the town only has a population of two, “We see over 3.9 million vehicles per year on the interstate” nearby.
“Rich in American history and military lore, the sale of Garryowen is a one-of-a-kind opportunity,” added Robb Bridges, Williams & Williams vice president of commercial sales. “It’s a chance to own a piece of history, but also own and operate a business at one of the country’s major tourist destinations.”
