Somehow this little village seems to survive. I visited again this weekend, and not much seems to have changed since the PO and grain elevator closed over 3O years ago.

Clothes still in the closet, stock still on the shelves.

Did not go in the basement though, you could hear something moving in there.

Very thrilling place.

That looks like it would be a fun one to Metal Detect...obvious where people walked in and out of buildings. Too bad so far away.

Does it have a caretaker? It's unusual to find a place that hasn't been stripped by souvenir hunters. It looks like a neat place to visit, thanks for sharing it.

No one lives there at all, just prarie dogs, gophers and an bunch of birds.

I hope no one shows up and takes things, that's not very nice.

Probably won't be long until the province torches it one winter though. They like to do that now.

I don't know if you still come around here but do you have a location for this place? I've tried google and haven't come up with much.

Wonderful shots of the place sir, it looks lovely.

Cheers from South eastern alberta.
