Population means how many people live someplace. This place used to have a family that lived here but they moved. You can’t exactly buy a town but a businessman from Vietnam bought everything in this town and a man who was in a war in Vietnam was actually the caretaker of the area for him. I have not been to Vietnam but my Grandpa has because he was in a war there. Mama told me that this businessman bought the general store and sold his Vietnamese coffee at the general store and so we wanted to buy some but the general store is permanently closed so we could not!!
