The School in Hingham, Montana

This is the school in Hingham, Montana. The school had a deserted look about it, although I suspect that was because it was summer (I think the school is still open). Regardless, keeping the schools open in these small towns on the Hi-Line and other small towns in the Great Plains is one of the great challenges. When a town loses it's school, all to frequently the town goes into a "death spiral", as the New York Times put it - as few new families are ever likely to move to the town. And as no new young people are in town, the town will continue to lose population bit by bit.
