    Toomsboro, a small town in southern Georgia, is for sale.

    A developer in south Georgia is looking for someone to buy a small town.

    Toomsboro, a small community with about 700 residents, has one convenience store, a florist, a custom cabinet shop and a post office. The Coastal Courier reports that developer David Bumgardner, who owns many of the properties in town, is putting them on the market.

    Bumgardner bought some of the properties from preservationist Bill Lucado and snagged others at auction about a decade ago with the intention of turning Toomsboro into a quaint tourist town.

    A cow named Darcy, who has a habit of causing trouble, busted out of her Colorado pen and made a half-mile trek to the local McDonald?s drive-thru. Her owners joked she wanted to visit former relatives. Eventually, Darcy's family was able to round her up and bring her back home.

    But his plans changed. Now Bumgardner and Lucado are putting the town up for sale again. Lucado thinks it would be a perfect fit for a movie production company seeking a set or a music company looking for a great venue.

    Earlier this month, the even smaller town of Buford, Wyo. — population one — sold at auction for $900,000.
