1920 and 2010 Wilton, ND

I’m not sure if it was 1920 when the historic photo was shot. It was not any earlier than that.  Local farmers would come to Wilton with their horses and wagons to haul coal back home.  In fact, there are still trails across much of the prairies where the wagons would cross the plains.  You can see that Wilton hasn’t changed a whole lot,  even though union bosses from back east killed the coal mine business, Wilton still keeps on living.
