Emrick, ND

Emrick, North Dakota is a tiny town in Wells County, about half way between Carrington and Harvey.  Emrick was originally named Doland, but the name was changed to avoid confusion with a town in South Dakota.  Emrick never held more than 25 people.

R. David Adams continuted these photos of Emrick, and his captions accompany the photos.

Welcome to Emrick. The Main street is in the back where the buildings are lined up.

Two Abandoned garages with no houses.

What’s left of a business of some kind.

one of two occupied houses at the end of main Street

A park was dedicated here in 1968 for the Shriners.  Editor’s Note:  The Postmaster in 1906 was a gentleman named Fred Clough.  Perhaps someone can enlighten us on the relationship to “Cy.”

Full view of the front o the store. The sun has been unkind to the drapes!

Part of the main store. I talked to a lady who grew up here and said this was on very well stocked store.

Looking down the main street

Still items waiting to be sold on the shelves!

Train Tracks thru town. Had several elevators at one time as well as a water tower and coal/wood loads for the steam trains! Very new building is a big trucking loading/unloading facility!
