An abandoned mining town on B.C.'s north coast is up for sale for just over $7 million, including everything from ocean-view apartments to a hospital.
The company town of Kitsault, northwest of Terrace, was established back in the 1960s as part of a molybdenum mine development and at one point had a population of 1,200.
The town shut down with the mine more than 20 years ago.
But a caretaking couple stayed behind to look after the 90 houses, seven apartment blocks, a shopping mall and a hospital that has an X-ray machine still wrapped in plastic.

Niho Land and Cattle Company President Rudy Nielsen, who is in charge of marketing the town, says he wants to see Kitsault revived as a vacation retreat, an eco-tourism town or a cruise ship destination.
"I've believed I've travelled B.C. more than anyone," he says. "This is one of the most beautiful spots I know in British Columbia."
He says he's already received dozens of calls expressing interest.
