Nome School

Barnes County
Vacant School Building

Our trip to South-Central North Dakota took us through Nome, ND which had this very impressive vacant school building nestled in amongst a group of occupied homes. Nome also has some other abandoned main street structures, but a sizable population as well.

    My mom graduated high school there in 1943. My cousins attended there in the 1960s, in fact, I attended with a cousin one day. It’s very close to where my grandparents lived in Nome. Haven’t been in that town since 1967, when we moved my grandma.

    My grandparents met there as teachers in 1920 and got married in 1921!!! Someday I will make it there!!!
