Hartland, North Dakota

Hartland, ND

Hartland is a tiny rural settlement in Ward County, about 25 miles northwest of Minot.  Unfortunately, much of what remains of Hartland is now fenced and posted “no trespassing,” so we were unable to get closer to the two abandoned homes shown here.  We saw one inhabited home on the site of Hartland.

The nearby (and often-suggested by our visitors) town of Aurelia is equally as sparse.  We did not visit Aurelia for a lack of structures to photograph.

    I grew up right by Hartland, about 3.5 miles from it. I graduated in 2001 and moved away. Our neighbor Selmer Norgard was one of the few still living in Hartland, though he passed away since then.
