Charbonneau ND Series - View of ghost town elevators from cemetery
Photograph - Photograph
Charbonneau ND (series) Out near the Montana border in McKenzie county ND, south of WIlliston lies the ghost town of Charbonneau. I spent a day exploring there in early July, and have uploaded numerous images here (search for "Charbonneau" to see them all together). The old schoolhouse, seen in this image, was closed in the 50's. Charbonneau was once a thriving town on the Great Northern rail, and had bank, several grocery stores, a John Deere dealer, post office, blacksmith, hotel, cafe, and more. Now, nothing remains aside from two abandoned elevators, the abandoned post office, and abandoned two-room schoolhouse and lots of empty, burned-out foundations. This image shows the two elevators and the once-post-office building in the heart of town, viewed from the cemetery to the NE.
Images captured 7/3/20.
