Have you ever wanted to own a piece of history? Looking to build that dream getaway on a historic plot of land? Well, now's your chance. For a mere $69,500 you can own a 1.4 acre plot in western Montana previously owned by none other than Unabomber Ted Kaczynski.

Mastermind behind the several bombings between 1978 and 1995, Ted Kaczynski was notably against technology. So, if you're hoping for plumbing, a hot bath, or an outlet to charge your iPad – this parcel's not for you. There's no power or sewage on the property. And if the idea of trying to turn the Unabomber's infamous cabin – Kaczynski's previous base of operations – into a cozy country home sounds a bit too off the wall for you, not to worry. Kaczynski's cabin is not part of the deal.

The cabin was removed as evidence and shipped to California for his 1998 trial. In 2008, the FBI loaned it to the Newseum in Washington, D.C. Kaczynski was not amused.

For some, owning such a piece of history would be worth any price. For Kaczynski's former plot, that doesn't seem to be the case. The previous price for the Unabomber's lair: $154,500.00. With no bites, the price has been reduced to it's current $69,500.00. And not to worry, currently serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole, Kaczynski is not likely to return to his old digs.

Listed by John Pistelak Realty in Lincoln, Montana, the posting for Kaczynski's former plot boasts that it's "secluded" and "Don't miss this one!"

So, with the holiday season upon us, you might be looking for that perfect gift for the person who's got everything. You might even be looking for a quiet retreat where you can spend the holidays.

Would you buy the Unabomber's little slice of Montana?
