Hilda, Alberta July 18, 2015

In 1910 the postmaster named this place Hilda after his daughter. Apparently less than forty people live here now. Interestling enough there was a mud bog competition right on the edge of town. I would have stayed but I was running low on time.

Grain elevator.

Former commercial building of some kind.

The school stands, it is no longer in use as a school.

School building.

Main street. It was characteristic of prairie towns to have very wide main streets.
