Inhabited as of 5/10
Appam, North Dakota is in the extreme northwestern part of the state, just off Highway 50. Appam was an unincorporated town and there is little census data available. Although little remains of the original town, the handful of current residents have posted a sign in front of each vacant lot, identifying the structure which once stood on the spot. It was somewhat sobering to see the sheer number of buildings, vanished to the ages.
The terrain around Appam is a rugged grassland, quite dry, and very remote. If you decide to visit this part of the state, prepare well. Cell service in Appam is sketchy at best, and disappears once you leave Highway 50.
