"The Old Buchta Place" - abandoned homestead on ND prairie with Simmental cattle grazing
As near as I can tell (from a 1929 plat map), this was the farmhouse residence of Frank Buchta, nestled in the buttes south of Leeds in Benson County, North Dakota. A 1910 plat map suggests it was originally homesteaded by an A.E. Buttz, but no home was there at that time.

Image captured 10/4/22 at 105mm focal length.
