This is my kind of town. Small yet adorable. This could easily be the entry for "Small Town" in the dictionary. If I could make a living working and living in a town like this, I'd be there tomorrow. By the time this town got "too big" I'd be dead.

Yep, officially a ghost town. The only remaining structures are a public school, Lutheran church, a garage, and several houses, which no one is living in. The post office closed in 1965.
