Lucca, ND was founded in 1891 as a Soo Line town. It is in south-central North Dakota, between I94 and the South Dakota border.
Historical records indicate Lucca has existed in two locations, about a mile apart. We found that to be accurate. Thanks to some enlightening correspondence from site visitor Linda Johnson, we’re able to confidently say, the majority of the pictures you see on this page are from the “Old” Lucca townsite, about a mile north of modern-day Lucca (with the exception of the cemetary, which is in modern Lucca).
We were disappointed to find the present-day Lucca looks a lot like a salvage yard these days, with only one or two abandoned buildings, and they were in the middle of some very elaborately posted private property. It was pretty hard to get any good pictures.
