John Piepkorn contributed these photos of the Hamlet School, in Williams County, in 2010 with the following comments:
I have attached some images of the Hamlet, ND school. The “town” has approximately 5 houses that look to be inhabited and about 1/4 mile down a dirt road from the houses, the school sits decaying. There is no roof and much of the brick wall in the back is gone. The inside was inhabited by a huge swarm of yellowjackets, so I had to settle for pics through the window.
Hamlet is an unincorporated community in Williams County with about a handful of residents, about halfway between McGregor and Wildrose, North Dakota. This former public school stands just north of town.
