There’s No Building In The World Like This One In North Dakota
I’ve mentioned this place in an article before, but have never really gone in depth about it, and I think it’s time to change that. This place is so fascinating in origin, information – and just on appearance alone. You’ll never find anything like it anywhere else in the world, and you won’t believe some of these facts about it. It truly is bizarre; just see for yourself.

The entire complex cost billions of dollars to build and ended up being completely unused. In 2012, the site went up for auction and sold at $530,000. It is now private property and not open to the public. The place is still sitting empty and untouched for the most part, and becoming eerier as time goes on. Here is a video from just last year of some drone footage showing the creepy atmosphere and crumbling concrete.
It’s like something from a dystopian novel to me. I wonder how long it’ll still be there? I wouldn’t be surprised if it was still around well after our lifetimes, living on as a strange part of history most people don’t know about. This story is also a pretty unknown, and insane, bit of history, and happened right in North Dakota. This state has quite the past!
Leah moved to North Dakota when she was 12 years old and has traveled from the Red River Valley to the badlands and many places in between. She loves small-town life and currently enjoys living on a small farm in the ND prairie. She's always had a passion for writing and has participated in novel writing challenges such as NaNoWriMo multiple times. Her favorite part about this job is recognizing small businesses that deserve a boost and seeing the positive affect her articles can have on their traffic, especially in rural areas that might have otherwise gone overlooked.
