Unabomber land now up for sale in Montana

The 1.4 acres lot that serial bomber Ted Kaczynski used to make his bombs as the Unambomber is now up for sale. The cabin Kaczynski used is long gone, but the land itself, outside of Lincoln, Montana, can be bought for $69,500.

Kaczynski is a former college math professor who decided that society, and technology, was too corrupt so he left civilization. He lived on the small 1.4 acre lot in a tiny cabin without running water or electricity. From here he would mail bombs to people across the country. He killed three people and wounded 23 in a spree that lasted from 1978 to 1995.

Kaczynski was eventually turned into authorities by his brother. He is now serving a life sentence in a Super Max penitentiary in Colorado. The cabin he lived in was removed, whole, from the lot and now resides in the Newseum in Washington, D.C.

Land secluded and quiet

The parcel of land, just a few miles outside of Lincoln, Montana, a town with a population around 1,100 people, is secluded and surrounded by wilderness. It is described by those trying to sell the land as “quiet.” All that remains that Kaczynski was even there are a few bottles and a root cellar, according to a report from CNN.

The land itself, according to some developers and real estate experts in the area, would probably only go for about $50,000 normally. However, the historical value and the infamous nature of the land and what happened there drives up the price. Originally, the land was for sale at a price of $154,500.

The sales brochure for the land, according to the CNN story, touts the historical value of the property. However, it also says the land has “great hunting and fishing.”

No one has lived on the property since Kaczynski was arrested and sent to prison.
