Buy a Piece of ‘Alaskan Bush People’ History! The Brown Family Alaskan Compound “Browntown” is For Sale

“Come ‘n’ get it!”

To anyone looking to try their hand at the Alaskan Bush People way of life, you’re in luck! 

According to Soap Dirt, the 29.11-acres of Alaskan land formerly owned by Billy Brown and his famous family is on the market and can be yours for just $795,000.

According to the Zillow listing, Browntown is located on Chichagoff Island, approximately 15 miles from the town of Hoonah, Alaska. The site features the family’s main house, Matt and Bam Bam‘s respective huts and, of course, Bear‘s treehouse.

“You’re welcome!”

As fans of ‘Alaskan Bush People’ may recall, Billy, his wife Ami and their children relocated out of Alaska and left Browntown following Ami’s 2017 cancer diagnosis. Though Ami’s cancer is now in remission, her doctors reportedly do not want her living so far off of the grid as a precaution in the event that her cancer returns. 

A 2015 episode of ‘Alaskan Bush People’ showed the Browns moving into the house. At the time, Ami said that it was “definitely the house of my dreams.” 

“Looking around at what we did and what we achieved out in the middle of nowhere, it feels good,” Matt said during the episode.

Following Ami’s cancer battle though, Billy publicly stated that he and his family can never live in Alaska again.

“Guess we’ll have to stick to living in the wildlife of the lower 48.”

Critics of ‘Alaska Bush People’ argue that the Brown family aren’t technically living “off the grid” year-round to begin with and are in Browntown only when filming the show… and living comfortably in the suburbs otherwise. 

The new season of ‘Alaskan Bush People’ premieres Wednesday, December 4 on Discovery.

  1. Isn’t that place known for having the highest bear population? Who would want to live on a bear infested island? Or was that another lie?


    1. No they don’t. First they didn’t really live there when not filming. The 3 oldest sons had their shacks. The two daughters had bedrooms upstairs. Now supposedly none of them really live together except I think the parents and the two daughters. I read Noah and his wife really live in Colorado. Bam bam resides in the Bahamas with his girlfriend. Matt is in California with his girlfriend. Bear may live with them part time but he said he will visit his Texas often to see his child. Gabe married a woman who already had two children and now they are expecting their first child together. So I am pretty sure he has his own place for his growing family in Washington.


  2. Wait… so we have pay so much for a place They never stayed on this piece of land. They were staying at Lodge here in Hoonah, three meals a day!


    1. Do you really live near there? Was anything they filmed real? Did they help build any of those structures? The tire house? Was Kenny even real? I liked him and Matt.
