We visited Straubville, North Dakota, a ghost town south of Jamestown, on a cloudy day in 2005 and found it totally abandoned. Unfortunately, we arrived a few years too late to capture the major remaining buildings when they were still standing. We’ve been told that things have deteriorated since our last visit, so we’re hoping to go back to Straubville some time in the near future for an update.
We were recently digging through our archive and realized we had a good selection of photos from Straubville that we had never posted, so here they are for your enjoyment.
