Eastedge and Buttzville, ND. October 5, 2014

One of the things I find interesting about the buildings we came across was the varied condition each was in. Some buildings were still usable, with just a bit of weathering.

Others were not so usable.

And some looked like they just needed a little shove.

Over a long weekend my wife, dad, and I toured Cavalier County near Milton, ND to see some of the abandoned buildings and farms. Our first stop was at a former turkey hatchery that had seen better days.
