Tenney, in southern Wilkin county near the tri-state North Dakota/South Dakota/Minnesota junction, came to my attention when I saw a story on the news about how they had voted to dissolve, officially shedding the “town” designation. I took a short trip one day to catch a few photos and see this vanishing place for myself.
These photos were taken in 2011. Purely by coincidence, we found ourselves in Tenney again 364 days later and the buildings shown directly above and below were both gone. No idea what happened to them. Even the highway sign “Tenney Pop 6” had been taken down.
The sign said population 6, but it was soon to be zero.
