Abandoned Igloo Hotel Goes Up For Sale
It's not a real estate listing you see everyday: a half-finished igloo in the Alaskan wilderness is on the market.
The four-story, dome-shaped structure was originally envisaged as a hotel, but it has sat half-finished and abandoned (save for the odd vandal) for nearly 40 years.
Dubbed "Igloo City" by locals, the building has fascinated passersby, but was never completed because of problems with the original construction and a lack of funds.
However, getting the building into shape is probably only the first part of the challenge for its new owner. Finding guests for the hotel might be quite the task too – the igloo is located along a remote highway 180 miles north of Anchorage, and the nearest town is home to a little over 200 residents.
Check out pictures of the igloo hotel below.
