Calvin is a near-ghost town in Cavalier county, not far from the Canadian border. It was founded in 1902 as a stop on the Great Northern Railroad, and swelled to 350 residents at its peak. Today, Calvin is home to about 20 residents. I found these photos on a disc Terry gave me back in 2006, but I was unsure where they were taken. Based on the photos of the Corinthian Lodge and time stamp on the photos, I came to the conclusion that these photos were taken in Calvin. If anyone spots a misplaced photo, please contact us.
The entire top floor of this lodge has collapsed in the years since these photos were taken.
