Town of Tiller finds a buyer

Tiller, Ore. – It appears the tiny southern Oregon town that went up for sale now has a buyer.

Along the South Umpqua River, on 257 acres, nestled between the Umpqua National Forest and BLM lands, sits quiet Tiller, Oregon. Population 250.

Residents say the current owner inherited the land from their parents who purchased it decades ago with a plan to put down roots and raise a family.  They have since passed away and now their kids have put the town on the market for a little over $3.8 million.

According to real estate website, the 29 parcel riverfront package consists of “rural commercial, industrial, residential, agricultural, farm forest and timber resource zonings. Crucial water rights and existing infrastructure present endless possibilities.”

NBC5 News has confirmed with the seller’s realtor the property is currently in escrow, and the purchasers are a couple from Ashland.

Folks around town agree, they want to share the beauty of their quaint community with the right buyer, but they don’t want what they love most to be compromised.

Once the property closes and the deal is finalized, we’ll learn more about the sellers and their intentions.

NBC5 News will continue to provide updates as they become available.
