The Bucksnort Saloon in Pine, Colorado started out as a mercantile in the late 1800s and later converted to a bar. The histroic property is now for sale for $700,000.

According to Bill Downes, owner and chief broker at Evergreen Commercial Group, the $700,000 list price includes the iconic bar and restaurant plus four lots. Three of the lots are adjacent to the building and one is an independent lot used for overflow parking, he said. The saloon’s owners, LJ and Kathy Weller, could not immediately be reached for comment.

The Bucksnort started out as a mercantile in the late 1800s and later converted to a bar, though it’s unknown exactly when, according to The Denver Post’s previous reporting. But ever since, it’s been a popular stop for motorcyclists traversing the Front Range as well as plenty of other passersby looking to time travel while enjoying a burger and a beer.

It’s unclear if the dollar bills that adorn nearly every inch of the walls and ceiling, left by a century’s worth of visitors, will be transferred to the new owners.

“There must be $10,000 in bills on the walls and ceiling,” Downes said.
