Inside Sheyenne River Academy

Inside Sheyenne River Academy

We visited the former Sheyenne River Academy, in Wells County just a few miles northeast of Harvey, in 2012. We were unable to find anybody at home when we visited, so we were unable to get permission to go inside.

However, John Mosher recently posted some photos of the abandoned remains of Sheyenne River Academy to our Facebook page and graciously gave us permission to post them here.

John says, “More pics of the Sheyenne river academy by Harvey ND for you guys and gals. I had permission to check it out by the way. Floors are unsafe and the building is in disrepair but it was cool!!

Sheyenne River Academy opened in 1904 and used this site until 1976 as a Seventh Day Adventist secondary school. See photos from our first visit and learn more about this place here.

  1. Thank you so much for these photos that bring back wonderful memories. Some of the photos are hard for me to envision since I only attended SRA one year. So, I wish that more of them were labeled. But, I am grateful for the ones that you did label. My time at SRA is one of the best years of my life where I met some of my dearest friends.
