Kathryn is a beautiful little town in Barnes county, nestled in the Sheyenne River Valley. It is more of a small town than a near-ghost town with a population of 57. There’s a nice little bar in Kathryn, and one or two more businesses as well as some nicely maintained homes. We decided to photograph Kathryn because there were also some photogenic abandoned buildings.
If you decide to drive the Sheyenne River Valley Scenic Byway, Kathryn is the perfect non-touristy place to stop in for a beer.
