Hamilton, North Dakota is in Pembina County and is home to the Pembina County Fair. It still has a substantial population and is in no danger of becoming a ghost town any time soon — according to the 2010 Census, there are 61 residents. But there are some cool abandoned structures to photograph, most notably, the Hamilton Baptist Church.
We visited Hamilton on a day when the skies were filled with haze which diffused the otherwise bright summer sun and created a somewhat dreamy effect.
