Thank you to Miranda Schuler of Upload Photography for contributing these photos of Carbury. Her comments: Carbury is SW of Souris ND and your typical small rail town that has withered away since the rail was pulled up. I would guess there are maybe 5-6 families still living there. The whole town is heavily posted with no tresspassing signs, so I didn’t venture out much. There was what appeared to be an old store that is in good condition, but I believe it has been converted into a home or hobby shop and I didn’t take photos because the dogs that lived there were not really excited I was there.

Carbury never boomed, having a peak population of 50 people in 1920. In 1980, the population was listed as 5. An interesting side note – Carbury was originally intended to be named Roth, but due to a mixup, the signs were switched and never corrected.
