Unabomber’s slice of Montana now more affordable

If you want to get your hands on what is arguably one of the most famous pieces of Montana countryside, now is your chance.

A 1.4-acre plot that was once owned by Ted Kaczynski is on the market. Kaczynski, who is better known as the Unabomber, killed three people and injured 23 from 1978 to 1995. He is currently serving a life sentence and thus has no use for it anymore. The off-the-grid cabin, in which he constructed the aforementioned bombs, is now in a museum – so for the asking price of under $70,000 you get a patch of isolated rural land with nothing on it.

For the record, realtor John Pistelak has said that the land was originally listed at $154,500, which seems quite a lot for such an isolated property (though it must be said that I am not an expert on Montana land prices). While the place does have some history, the whole domestic terrorism thing is not the sort of historical association that most people would want to buy into, especially in these paranoid times.
