We visited this Masonic lodge, AF & AM Corinthian Lodge, Number 78, in 2006 in Calvin, North Dakota, and got photos with no idea that it would soon be gone. Mariah Masilko took these photos in 2012.Continue reading “The End of the Calvin Masonic Lodge”

Ten More Lost North Dakota Places
Sometimes we photograph a place and find out years later that it’s gone, sometimes the place is gone by the time we get there. But the one constant is that the list of places is growing all the time.
Here’s another list of ten more significant North Dakota places that have unfortunately lost their battle with time. When you’re done with this one, check out 10 Lost North Dakota Places, and 8 More Lost North Dakota Places.Continue reading “Ten More Lost North Dakota Places”
Calvin is a near-ghost town in Cavalier county, not far from the Canadian border. It was founded in 1902 as a stop on the Great Northern Railroad, and swelled to 350 residents at its peak. Today, Calvin is home to about 20 residents. I found these photos on a disc Terry gave me back in 2006, but I was unsure where they were taken. Based on the photos of the Corinthian Lodge and time stamp on the photos, I came to the conclusion that these photos were taken in Calvin. If anyone spots a misplaced photo, please contact us.
The entire top floor of this lodge has collapsed in the years since these photos were taken.
