This is the Beaver Township Country School/Township Hall, on Mud Lake in Benson County, about 23 miles southeast of Rugby, just a short drive south of York, North Dakota.
The location of this school, right on the water, is very beautiful, however, we battled 40 mile-per-hour wind gusts all day as we stopped at places like Jospehine and Immanuel Lutheran Church, and when we arrived here, it was positively frigid. Terry and I were both reminded what it must have been like to attend school in a little building like this in a howling snowstorm. Brrr.
