R. David Adams contributed these photos of Orrin, ND, a near ghost town in Pierce county, west of Fillmore. We checked census records going back to 1920 and found no listing for Orrin. As we’ve seen time and time again, Orrin began it’s final decline with the closure of the elevator, which happened in 1965. The school shown below, and the last store, closed in 1972.
According to North Dakota Place Names by Douglas Wick, the population was just 35 in 1984.
