Abandoned Buttzville Farm

Buttzville is in Ransom County, just northeast of Lisbon. These photos were taken on the abandoned farm just west of Buttzville.

This farm is just across the water from Buttzville.

Rain showers had just moved out.

Not quite sure what this ruin was... a barn?

Spring buds just on.

Penny for your memories.

Whomever lived on this farm had a tremendous view.

    I live in Masachusetts and I’ve been fascinated by abandoned towns and farms like the one above since I was a little kid and I’m glad that I found your site. And the pictures of the above farm are real cool. Thanks.

    I’d love that old International pickup truck.

    This abandoned farm used to be my Great-Grandparents, Tom and Clara Leonard. Tom and my Grandfather, Ross, built it I believe around the early 1920’s . You are correct…the ruin used to be the barn. I have a picture that we took in 2009, shortly before it went down. I will post it on your Facebook page. You can see the cupola on the top of the barn is the image that you show lying in front of the fence. That beautiful view that you comment on, showing a small lake……the water never used to be there. It has been filling up since some of the floods years ago. The garage in the middle used to be the grain shed. The building on the right used to be the chicken coop. Their house used to be off to the right hand side of the picture. It was moved many years ago to a location over by highway 27 to the East of Lisbon. It has been remodeled and added on to, so it looks very different. Love your work and pictures!!! Thanks for helping to preserve some of our history. Great Job!!!!

    My father, Chester ‘Chet’ Fredrickson had the general store in Buttzville around 1944 to 1947. The upper half of that store was moved into lisbon and is now an apartment, I don’t know what happened to the lower half. My sister’s late father in law operated the elevator there for many years. I am almost seventy so I have very few recollections about the town, or Dad’s store. I remember the boxes that had cookies in them.
