North Dakota is our state of choice for pheasant hunting. The wonderfully desolate landscape is dotted with remnants of past lives – abandoned homesteads, equipment and my favorite . . . old school houses.
We drove by this one room school house for 9 years, always talking about how we should get a group picture in front of it. We never got it done until this year. Worth the wait I think.
The Cherry Butte School is east of Regent, ND and is dated 1913. Our guide’s father went to school here. It is literally in the middle of nowhere. Can you imagine the class looking out those windows and watching a North Dakota storm blowing in, wondering if they were going to make it home?
