Hello all

Here is an example of an abandoned farming community.

 Overlooking the rolling plains of South Dakota is the ghost town of Okaton. Though the 2000 census states the town is still inhabited by 29 people, the vast majority must live on nearby farms, as most of the remaining buildings are crumbling, and the only sign of life is at the old general store and the tiny little post office.

 Okaton?s days as a thriving railroad and farming community are long past. Established along the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railroad, as it pushed westward towards Rapid City in the early 1900?s, the town housed many of the railroad men as well as a number of hardy homesteaders. It soon sprouted a number of businesses, all but one of which, are gone today.

These little villages are a constant reminder of the ongoing process of abandonment across America.

Hardluck  Huh?
