Snow Pictures: Carrington, ND




It's fun to drive around Carrington, taking pictures of the infinitely changing aspects of snow. Take a look at some of my favorite snow photos.

Architecturally speaking, the Foster County Courthouse is the most beautiful building in Carrington. The following description is taken from A History of Foster County, compiled by the Foster County History Book Committee in cooperation with the Foster County Commission and in conjunction wit the Foster County Centennial - 1983:

"The Foster County Courthouse is one of the thirteen Buechner and Orth courthouses in North Dakota named to the National Register of Historic Places by the Secretary of the Interior in 1980. The building, both inside and out, has remained virtually unchanged during its 70 years of service to the citizens of the county. Its stark outlines are now obscured and softened by trees which reach as high as the pediment over the front entrance. It no longer gives the impression of standing isolated on the flat prairies, residences have been built as close as across the street on two sides. The exterior brick and stonework show only a minimum of weathering and wear, and there are no obvious cracks or uneven settling of the structure. The copper sheathing of the dome, now covered with aluminum paint, still shines from the distance on sunny days." More...


  1. Your pictures are beautiful! How might I purchase the winter ones of the Putnum House and the Foster County Court House?
    Please advise.
    Thank you,

    1. Catherine... Thank you for the nice compliment. You don't need to purchase any of my photos. Just click on the image, it will become larger, and you can download it into your computer. Another way to acquire the photo is... Right-click with your mouse, click on Copy, and paste it into a Microsoft Word Document. You can pull the corners to size it to the page and then print it from there. Hope this helps. ~Judy (Keller)
