Remembrances of a childhood in Cleveland
I grew up near Cleveland, North Dakota. It is where most of us went to
school and church. I noticed that it is now officially listed as a ghost town on
. That may be a bit of an exaggeration--its hardly a place you can wander through kicking covered wagon remains--but it does tell you
how much things have changed. When I was a child there was a little post office
building that had, set in masonry, the word "bank" at the top of it. I remember asking my
grandfather why the post office had the word "bank" on it and he told me it was
because it used to be a bank. When he first settled near Cleveland, there were several
stores, two banks, multiple restaurants and bars and gas stations. It was the place to
hang out on a Saturday night. There was a parade each July 4. Today there is very
little of anything left in Cleveland: a couple of nearly-empty churches, a few houses, a
grain elevator, a gas station off the freeway exit. The public school is now abandoned, I
believe, the gymnasium used for farm storage.
