12 Miles & Butte ND

Great Minot Real Estate Service

12 Miles & Butte ND

School at Butte ND

 

Butte ND is a little community of about 100 people. Once a teeming metropolis of close to 700. The school above closed years ago as did the elevator and several of the many churches around town (I counted 7 church buildings). The following pics are from in Butte ND and the 12 mile road to Russo ND, even more of a ghost town than Butte ND. The sign below for Kongsberg ND refers to a town that as I understand it has a population of 1. When I Googled Kongsberg I was fascinated by the history I found and the ensuing on line reunion of folks with roots to Kongsberg.
