This former schoolhouse is virtually all that remains of a town that was once Maza in southern Towner county, a short drive south of Cando. In 2000, the population of Maza was listed as 5. In 2002, the city was dissolved. Today, there are some scattered buildings in the area and a farm or two.
We ran across this building in 2008, sitting right beside the highway. Rat snapped a few quick photos, and we promptly forgot all about them. During the process of creating a master photo archive, we rediscovered them, but couldn’t remember where they were taken. Our Facebook fans were able to identify the location as Maza. Fun!
We’ll be asking our Facebook fans to identify some more locations in the future, so follow us on Facebook to participate.
