Bankrupt?

Bankrupt?
Just an old building spotted on a trip up to ND. This is in Maxbass, and a very similar bank building exists in Antler, a short drive north from here.

Heh :) also how often do you run into these sightings of old buildings?

There are a fair number of towns across ND that are either now ghost towns or are sadly long past their prime - there's even a website someone else has put together: ghostsofnorthdakota.com

That bank certainly hasn't seen any money in a long time.

Nice old bank! What's the 30 dollars per barrel of oil going to do to the state?

Haven't kept up with the news in that part of the state (the Bakken reserve covers the northwest quarter), but I did hear the oil companies had been laying off quite a few people.

Add in the EPA's new restrictions on coal (there are still centuries' worth of lignite in the ground at current usage, most of which are being used to power seven major power plants - ND exports most of the electricity it generates) and the economy in my home state isn't looking that great.
