Sarles, North Dakota is a tiny town right on the border of Cavalier and Towner Counties, fewer than 4 miles from the Canadian border.
At the time of our visit in 2006, this school was undergoing renovation by a lady who wanted to turn it into a hunting lodge. She was doing a very nice job of it. Unfortunately, we’re told the restoration project ended before completion and the school is once again abandoned. We hope to return one day soon and get an update on the status of this place.
