A mysterious, one-of-a-kind home in northwest Wyoming is up for sale. 

The Smith Mansion in Wapiti — roughly halfway between Cody and Yellowstone National Park on U.S. Highway 20 — sits on 10 acres and is listed at $750,000. 

Francis Lee Smith, an architectural engineer who worked in Cody, began construction of the massive structure in 1971. He continued building, alone and by hand, until he died in 1992 after falling from an upper level. 

Smith's daughter Sunny Smith Larsen began work to clean up the property in 2010. At the time she hoped to eventually restore the mansion and open it to the public. 

The property is being advertised by Richard Realty of Cody. You can find a more detailed history of the Smith Mansion in this 2012 article from the Star-Tribune
