The quiet, small town life is abundant in North Dakota. There are many lovely little cities out there that never seem to change. Life goes by at a leisurely pace and the good old days stay that way. There’s not much not to love about these kind of places, and here are 8 great examples of sleepy small towns in the Peace Garden State.
This quiet small town is located in a county under the same name in north central North Dakota. The population is just shy of 600 residents and it was founded in 1905. Not much has changed in it since then, and the population has only had a slight increase since its early days. It continues to be a nice, quiet place to live.
Center may not be in the center of North Dakota, but it is certainly the center of attention in its county, Oliver County. It is, in fact, the only incorporated place in the entire county and naturally it is also the county seat. With such quiet surroundings and an interesting local history, Center can stay exactly how it is and stay that way for many decades.
The charming town of Kulm certainly stays true to its town motto of a "small town with a big heart." The town is incredibly charming and is located in LaMoure County. It was founded in 1892 and has a population of just 354.
This delightful place is located in two counties - Cass and Ransom. Although it had a population boom from 1910-1920, today it is a peaceful little town with 886 residents.
Leeds, named after its English counterpart, was founded in 1887 and has never had a population over 800. Today, only 427 people live in the quiet town and life keeps going smoothly.
The wonderful little town of Hatton is a great place to visit if you're looking for some small town charm and history. There are some unique historical buildings to explore here that have been the same for decades, much as the town has. It was founded in 1882.
Like many North Dakota small towns, Underwood was founded along the railroad line as it continued its path across the state. It was even named after the vice president of the railroad company that founded it at the time. 778 people form the community there today.
Visiting Cooperstown will certainly give you some interesting blasts from the past. Not only does the streets in the town itself hold older buildings that'll spark your nostalgia, but there is another spot that is frozen in time. Just outside of the town is the Ronald Reagan Minuteman Missile Site. You can visit it and explore a relic of the Cold War that has been left almost entirely untouched since it was decommissioned.
