Also known as the Old Pearce Mercantile or the Arizona Ghost Town Museum, the property sits on a 0.64-acre lot, per the listing. It was listed in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) in 1978, per its registration document.
"The mercantile has been standing there at the same spot since 1895. It was your one-stop-shop, like today's department store," listing agent Patsy Nyberg from Realty One Group Integrity told Insider. "There was even a Wells Fargo bank inside."
The couple bought the old general store in 1996, per a property insurance document that Nyberg sent to Insider. Burris declined to share the purchase price.
The 19th-century mining town of Pearce flourished until the 1930s, per the Arizona Department of Transportation. It's now part of the Arizona Ghost Town Trail — a popular road trip route that links three former mining towns together.
Today, there are fewer than 2,000 people living in Pearce.
