Photographer's Note

Accross northeastern Montana and all accross the west are homes, farms and towns abandoned to neglect and the elements. This old school is one more example. The Nickwall school is the only structure left from what was once the community of Nickwall Montana. Here you can see the old school house standing tough against yet another cold day and blowing snow.

Accross the road is a graveyard where the pioneers and founders of the old town now rest. With the decline of the small family farms, so went the town. Some building simply decayed, others were torn down for the materials they contained, and remainder were destroyed by the new owners to make room for the plow or to eliminate opportunity for vandals and squatters.
