Billionaire Proves He Has Too Much Time and Money by Building Pointless Western Town


You know how sometimes people will ponder what they would do if they had a ton of money? Like, what pointless thing would they spend all that cash on? And sometimes, people have answers that are completely out there, like “I’d build a life size Star Trek Enterprise*.” Welllll, the Koch brothers actually have billions of dollars and plenty of time to do ridiculous things with it.

The latest? William Koch, the youngest one who wasn’t being portrayed in the Will Ferrell/Zach Galifianakis’ film The Campaign, has built his very own “wild west” town, just because he can.

…a 50-building grown man’s imaginarium, boasting a saloon, a church, a firehouse, a train station, and even a jail for those who defy him.

The town sits on a 420-acre meadow on Koch’s Bear Ranch property, and was obviously designed by someone high.

The un-settlement, the Post explains, will exist “simply for Koch’s amusement.”

This is nuts, right? Billy Koch has a wild west obsession. Last year, he paid $2.3 million for a photo of Billy the Kid. He also owns Jesse James’ gun (the original, not Kat Von D’s ex), Wyatt Earp’s vest, Sitting Bull’s rifle, and George Custer’s flag.

Want to see the look on my face as I read all of this?

I guess he’s got to spend those billions on something, though.

*This is pretty close to something I’ve heard.
