  1. This is very cool. I guess you consider cardake a ghost town. But there still are people living there. Has a really neat church that is still used and the old store is now gone. People bought it and moved it.

    I grew up in Napinka,been away over 50 years but it initially was a big railway intersection of several lines.A busy little farming community in my time Love these pictures but so nostalgic and heart wrenching for we former residents.
    My great Grandparents re buried in Lyleton cemetery and my Father was born there!

    I grew up in the Harding and Bradwardine and Lenore area familiar with some of the buildings specially the garage in Harding , that was the old Fred mcCahan garage when I was young. There several old buildings in this area of old importance. Including the old Harding Agriculture building in the fair grounds and the Terry Shurvel John Deere building up the street from the garage

    Napinka’s church has been taking down and Lauder had a grass fire that got away and lost a few places and it was its 125 last year and a lot more had been cleaned up. The rink collapsed during the March storm this year.

  5. When you grow up in one of these towns and you know the wonderful people who made the little community great, i find it sad to see all the harmful drugs and killings in large centers and these little towns are ghost towns were these thing were not thought of!
