We weren’t expecting a lot when we visited Roth since it’s a very small town site, west of Bottineau, but we left disappointed after discovering a combination of factors would keep us from getting the photos we’d hoped. ┬áMuch of the town is now heavily overgrown, hiding some of the vacant structures, and there are No Trespassing signs posted as well.

We’ve heard from others that there might be three or four families in Roth, but we only saw one residence that was definitely inhabited, and we were unsure about one other home.

This pink home is the most impressive of the structures on the Roth site, but we were concerned about some No Trespassing signs nearby, so we didn’t venture out for a closer look.

Do you see a house in here? No, we don’t either. But there is one in there.

Thank you to Miranda Schuler of Upload Photography for contributing these photos of Roth. Her comments: Here are the first photos I collected of Roth, ND today. I’d like to go back and get a few closer shots of the old pink house, but the ground was too wet to walk out there due to the recent heavy rains. Roth is a very small town between Souris and Westhope, ND and I would guess there may be 3-4 families living there. Most people in the area are familiar w/ the pink house, however I was unable to get any info on it.

An interesting side note – Roth was originally intended to be named Carbury, but due to a mixup, the signs were switched and never corrected.
