Nipton is close to the Nevada border off Interstate 15, about 15 miles from neighboring Primm, Nevada and an hour from Las Vegas.

Nipton is a historic railroad town with about 20 full-time residents.

The town last made headlines in 2017, when an Arizona cannabis company named "American Green" bought it for $5 million.

The investors planned to turn it into a pot-themed retreat powered by renewable energy.
