Aladdin

Aladdin is a 30-acre hamlet in eastern Crook County. There are 15 people and five families in the community. Before the closure of the nearby Aladdin coal mine, the town was home to 200 residents. Today the town consists of a landmark historic store, post office, gas station, an adjacent 2-bedroom home, an outbuilding with a walk-in cooler, a seven-unit mobile home park, a café, and the Aladdin Motel. The town recently gained national attention when the town’s deed was sold at auction for $500,000. The new owners look to maintain the town and its services to serve the local ranching community and continue to build upon the town’s long standing western history.
