Roth in 2013

By / July 11, 2013 / Roth, ND

We weren’t expecting a lot when we visited Roth since it’s a very small town site, west of Bottineau, but we left disappointed after discovering a combination of factors would keep us from getting the photos we’d hoped.  Much of the town is now heavily overgrown, hiding some of the vacant structures, and there are No Trespassing signs posted as well.

We’ve heard from others that there might be three or four families in Roth, but we only saw one residence that was definitely inhabited, and we were unsure about one other home.

This pink home is the most impressive of the structures on the Roth site, but we were concerned about some No Trespassing signs nearby, so we didn’t venture out for a closer look.

Do you see a house in here? No, we don’t either. But there is one in there.
