Sadly, this port of entry has closed. It once was among the busiest on the US - Canada border. Back when there weren't many roads, the Jefferson Highway went all the way from Winnipeg to New Orleans. This is where it crossed the border. But traffic waned when I-29 was built just a mile to the west, and it finally closed in 2006.

My memory is not that good. Border stations will fly their flags at half mast if former presidents or members of congress die, or if an INS or Customs officer is killed in the line of duty. Also state governors can call for the lowering of flags.

Very Nice Photo! Teča sa Dunava - Serbia!

This is a commonly photographed building because of the huge boundary marker right by the front door. I recall seeing a picture of it (and it's owner at the time) in the 1983 book about the US-Canada border "Lakes Peaks and Praries".

Pegase1972, you have really added to your photo library this year! Good to see I am not the only one who enjoys poking around the border. That Lineboro border station photo really threw me - I didn't know it was still there.

Funny you should mention the videophones. They were one of my creations. Here's a photo of me installing one along the St. Lawrence: http://www.panoramio.com/photo/39979591

US territory! No land connections!
