Niagara, North Dakota

By / May 8, 2014 / Niagara, ND

Niagara, North Dakota is just off US Highway 2, not quite forty miles west of Grand Forks. It was founded in 1882 by settlers from Niagara County, New York. According to the 2010 Census, Niagara has 53 residents.

Just as we pulled into town, the wind started to really blow and a light drizzle began… so we didn’t spend quite as much time photographing Niagara as we would have liked. We’ll definitely go back sometime when the weather is better.

There was once an impressive building on the corner of the intersection shown above.  It would have stood where the nose of the pickup is sticking out from behind the building.

This is my hometown. My parents still attend the church in town. My Dad was part of the group of people that replaced the bottom logs in the log cabin and repaired the doors and windows last summer. There are plans in the works to do some repair work on the school next. The city hall was burned down a few years ago just west of the historical village and across the street.

My name is Lonnie Berndt even though I moved away in 1969 I will always call Niagara home. My dad bought the bar in 1953,and went to school there until 1961 the last year of the school. I graduated from Unity High School in Petersburg 1963. My brother Gary and his six class mates graduated the last year of school in 1960. Niagara was a great place to grow up,we had a nice place to swim at Niagara Dam,also Bachelors Grove for roller skating on Sunday nites,we even had a carnival on the 4th of July and baseball games. A lot of great memories.
