Talk about moving cities for love? How about moving an entire city for taxes?
This story goes back to 1909 when this ancient town of Ulysses had been faced with a staggering debt of $ 84000. The situation was desperate, considering it was 1909. Also, the population of this town had dwindled to a hamlet of barely 100 residents.
There were suits for several thousand dollars against the city for delinquent interest. Hence, the citizens were to pay a very high rate of taxes amounting to almost 600% increase in realty taxes and 362% on personal property taxes.
As exorbitant as it sounds, the citizens moved the entire city including whole buildings, just for the sake of taxes!
