When we see abandoned buildings, it’s our natural instinct to wonder why they have been left behind to the intense elements of North Dakota.
Come along with author Katherine Rose Bingham down a dirt road to see the workmanship of the past. Walk into a room and discover layers of wallpaper, the years peeling away one at a time. Drive by an old barn and look inside to see a treasured old vehicle left covered in dust.
Observe a steeple towering over the trees, the cooing of pigeons the only noise coming from the choir loft. Katherine Rose Bingham moved to a North Dakota farm in 2014. The farm had been in her husband’s family since 1938. She has always believed she was born in the wrong era, and these old pieces of history hold a fascination and wonderment for her.
Katherine finds joy in capturing a town that was once a booming oil field, seeing the hills divided where a train once trudged, and trying to preserve what once was in these vastly changing times.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR(S)
Katherine Rose Bingham is a wife, mother, and rancher who resides in Minnewaukan, North Dakota. Her world took a major turn in 2014. She was born and raised mostly in Manitoba, Canada. One day, while visiting her friend in North Dakota, she claimed she was going to be a mail order bride—perhaps a little barbaric in this day and age, but who said she was born in the right era? Who knew that only 10 miles south was her husband! She joined farmersonly.com and within a year had moved permanently to North Dakota and was married a few months later. She and her husband live on his family’s small farm/ranch and are raising the fourth generation. Along life’s journey, you will not see Katherine without her camera, always looking to capture life’s special moments. She is now living in a new state, meeting new people, and seeing where the next adventure will take her.
