Hamilton, North Dakota

Hamilton, North Dakota

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.

    Got my dad a copy of the book for his birthday a few weeks ago. Recently was out visiting him in western ND and got to see the book. Great job. He and his friend are planning to go see if they can find all the sights in the book. Keep up the good work.

    I used to work at the fair grounds when I was in high school. that town would burst at the seams when the fair came to town.

    Local legend says that when the county was founded the leaders of Hamilton and Cavalier had to decide who would host the county fair grounds and who would host the county court house. They debated and ended up flipping a coin and Cavalier won the toss making it the county seat. ha ha ha
