Email News Alerts

Hubbard County's favorite ghost town is slowly being resurrected.

The Emmaville Store, abandoned and vacant since April 2009, has been purchased.


New owners Mike and Melinda Spry are making massive repairs to the neglected building and hope to open the store and gas pumps in time for the snowmobiling season this winter.

The rest will come in time, Mike Spry said this week.
