The town of Sims, North Dakota has been abandoned for quite some time, which means there have been no official recorded residents for absolute years. Of course, no one living, that is.

The town itself sits abandoned nowadays, one of the creepiest abandoned places in North Dakota, that numbered 1,200 residents at its peak.
