Thank you to John Piepkorn for contributing these photos of Hanks. John’s comments:
I stopped in Hanks, North Dakota and took some pictures of the remaining structures. I also talked to the one remaining resident for about 15 minutes, she said she had heard of Ghosts of North Dakota, and I asked if I could take a few pictures of the town.
I took some of an abandoned house at the top of the hill, some of the cemetery which is north of town on a gravel road about 1/4 mile, some pics of what the lady described as the old bank, although it had a gas pump outside of it and the interior looked like someone had used it as a house, and one other old house. The old school is used as a museum now which is open only on sunday afternoons.
