More Nekoma, North Dakota

By / February 26, 2014 / Nekoma, ND

We got these photos of Nekoma, a town of about fifty in Cavalier County, in August of 2011. We stopped in to get photos of the nearby Stanley Mickelsen Safeguard Complex, and shot a bunch of stuff in town as well. These are some photos from our archive, never before posted. Enjoy.

People must live there as I see flower boxes? And the coliseum looks very nice and kept up.
Oh how I love this site.

Always enjoy seeing your new photos….even if they are a few years old. They are still new to me and everyone else that visits this wonderful site. Remember when the red, white & blue STANDARD sign was a “standard” in so many little towns? I’m gonna bet that the broken sign above the door of your last photo was a HAMM’S BEER sign….also nearly a “standard” in so many small rural communities. Oh, what wonderful memories that you bring to many of us. Thank You so much!

Thanks Melanie! I am still getting the hang of the site and never thought to go to the main article!!


You’re welcome : ) (I had noticed in the past that a lot of times in the main article, they mention whatever the approximate current population, or lack thereof, is.)


I lived in this town for 13 years. Some of the residents live more in the country, so that is why it looks like a “ghost town.” One of the main sources for keeping the town alive is the Pain Reliever Bar located a block down from where these photos were taken. Also, these photos only capture one block of the town.

Yes, as this post states “a town of about fifty in Cavalier County.” Obviously we’re not gonna go take pictures of the homes where people live and put them on our website. No need to take offense.


Drank Beer in those taverns back when stationed at the Stanley MiCkelson site for 1 year in 70s.. Site was operational for 1 day.
