Isabel, North Dakota is still a dot on the map. Located in Benson County on Highway 19, straight west of Minnewaukan, Isabel is a dot on the map, but not much more. On a 2013 trip to North Dakota to photograph some abandoned structures, we came across Isabel by accident. We actually drove by the townsite and found a wonderful old house and granary, and stopped to take some photos. The house had quite a bit of architectural detail and looked to have been abandoned for quite sometime. Inside it was the usual collection of bird and raccoon feces, bones, an old mattress, box spring and a few men’s shoes that seemed to be from the 1940’s.
If you would like some more information on Isabel, North Dakota, my friends at GhostsofNorthDakota.com have some additional photos and information.
