I have a small story, "The House by the side of the road" that my Great Aunt, Selma Folstad wrote about Melvin. It was about a big red house with green trim that belonged to the Northern Pacific Railroad. My Great Grandfather, Christ Folstad was a foreman for the NPR for 42 years after migrating from Norway in the late 1800's. The family lived in this house and they had up to 30 railroad workers staying with them. Selma said that at there were also 12 families in the village with a store and post office.
There is a current struggle to keep this old church from being torn down.

Boy, if only you you got all the fire houses everywhere you got the court houses...!
My father, Florian (Smoky) Schultz built the original Smoky's Bar and Lounge. He expanded when I was about 10 to include a larger dance area and a kitchen. My mother, Barbara Schultz, was a musician and played with numerous North Dakota bands at this location. Smoky's (when my dad owned it) was known for great music and dances and their delicious post-dance smorgasbord and Friday night fish fry. When my dad decided to retire and sold the structure, it was renamed Smokey's (with an e). My dad, who is 94, is still a fantastic cook and lives in Grand Forks.
