A snowy, frosty day only adds to the sense of mystery in a ghost town. I wandered through the remains of the town of Norbeck on such a day last month.
Norbeck can be found on Highway 20 east of Hoven or northwest of Faulkton in north central South Dakota. It appears to never have been a large community at all, but even less remains today. The grain elevator and a few other buildings still stand along with a few occupied newer houses.
