Silva Lutheran Church in North Dakota has been abandoned for some time.  The steeple is now in a cemetery a few miles away.   When I was taking a few photos, the owner drove over to check things out and said he was trying to find some funds to fix some maintenance issues with the building, but otherwise it’s just been sitting quietly.  The town was founded in 1912, so I would guess this church may have been built soon after.  Today only a couple of people remain in what’s left of Silva.
