Flaxville is a tiny farming town near Canada, made up of around 70 people.
Judging by all of the elevators I would say that at least at one time, the transport of grain was very much alive and well.
Flaxville has a small, quiet main street with the typical assortment of run down (but very cool) historic buildings.
In closing, the history of this humble farming town:
"At one time, flax was the only crop grown in the area, so the name came easily. The first settlement was located 2.5 miles southwest of the present site and went by the name of Boyer. The town was moved to its present site when the Great Northern Railroad came through. The first post office was established in 1914 with Martha Bledsoe as postmaster." -travelmt.com
