Photographer's Note

The Great Plains of the United States are undergoing another change. The ongoing drought, combined with the changes in farming technologies and the resulting economic chages are driving families off their farms. Since the local towns rely on these farmers, the towns are also declining. I recently read a quote that says "when you lose the schools, you've lost the town".

This small town of Enid is a ghost town by all measures, but it appears that one family keeps the name alive and perhaps the last business. All else that is left of this old town is the school, what looks like a few deserted buildings and homes and a freshly painted sign welcoming visitors.
