Nemiskan, Alberta July 19, 2015

Founded in 1915 and originally started off as Bingham which was about one kilometre from this site. When the railroad passed Bingham a new town started up here and most of the residents moved. At one time there was a community hall, four grain elevators, a school, and a service station. Now there are abandoned buildings and one or two occupied houses.

 The cemetary is right on Highway 61, The town is a couple of kilometres away.

Old schoolhouse.

That sign has been there for years. I have seen it in older photos on ghost town forums. It was still there when I showed up.

Old store and garage building. On the other side of the road is a communications tower.

  1. Good photos. Strange to see sidewalks in a town out in the middle of nowhere.
