Ghost Towns of the Great Plains
North Dakota is surprisingly photogenic–think of it as the Palouse on steroids. Many of these lands were abandoned in the 1930s during the dustbowl era, then the 1950s-70s saw the buildings and small towns of a more modern era again deserted by farming families who migrated due to big agriculture and mechanization.
But many old homesteads, churches, barns, and schools remain from these earlier times. On this tour you’ll have the opportunity to photograph numerous abandoned gems and see firsthand these left-behind striking and eerie structures.
This tour can be combined with our Prairielands of South Dakota tour.
