You Can Buy A Clown Motel!
You want to own your own business? Well, why not this amazing “clown motel” in Tonopah Nevada! Reports list the asking price as $900,000 – let’s go!
ABC7 in Los Angeles reports:
“A clown-themed motel next to a reportedly haunted cemetery is going up for sale in rural Nevada, with the owner insisting the 600 clown figurines, mannequins and paintings, and his employees, get to stay.
After 22 years, the Clown Motel owner Bob Perchetti says it is time to find someone else to look after the clown figurines, mannequins and paintings spread throughout the building in Tonopah, about 250 miles northwest of Las Vegas.”
So, less than four hours away from Las Vegas, and you have all of this inside!
“Perchetti said he hopes to sell the motel in a month, but he is insistent the clowns stay.
“I’m not going to let them change the clown motif,” he said. “That’s going to be part of the contract.”
The motel was built around 1985 by siblings Leona and LeRoy David, Perchetti said. LeRoy David already owned the L and L Motel in town, but wanted to build another next to the cemetery where his father was buried.
The two thought it was the perfect place to house their small clown collection.”
Yep, it sits close to the town’s cemetery, and there have been reports that spirits have been seen in the area!
