More Abandoned Hamberg

Hamberg, North Dakota

Hamberg lost their school to a grassfire on April Fool’s Day, 2012.  In its absence, we took a new look at our archive of photos from 2008 and found these previously unseen things.  Enjoy.

This old bus next to the school sure would have been a nice fix-up project.

We have a special weakness for old Post Offices like this one in Hamberg. They’re steeped in history and frequently have so much character.

  2. Oh the memories! My father lived in the post office as a chil and he attended the school.

  3. Is the old church still used? What condition is the inside of the church? Thanks for a great blog from an east coaster.

  4. My father Myron Proefrock also attended the school. My grandparents Oscar & Ethel Proefrock lived there until they passed in the 90s.

  5. I was told a story probably 25 years ago about a store owner in the 1930s there. The story was, early one evening some men stopped at his shop and needed to talk with him about something important. He told his family he’d be gone for a short time and be back soon. He never returned. Rumors were he may have owed these men money. Can anybody confirm or deny
    this story? Thought this was an interesting story, but don’t know if it’s true.
