Today we took a long drive to an area of North Dakota we heard about but had not yet visited. We heard of this town called Jud that has most of the buildings covered in murals. Well, that peaked our interest and we spent a couple hours driving to it Southeast of Jamestown.
As promised, the town was indeed full of buildings covered in murals. The surprise was how small the town was and how little, other than the grain elevator, was going on in this small little town. How did they afford painting all these buildings with so few people and no real working businesses here?
We had a great time literally walking throughout the town and taking photos of each and every one of the murals. We also found some silo's and a well maintained church in the back section of town. You really have to look for it even as small as the town is. If you take the time on the west side there is a watershed which was also an interesting find.
So, if you find the time head out to this cool little town and see what you can find. We will be heading back ourselves as we both said to each other upon leaving our first time there. We love the feel of this little town and it was a delight to find it. :-)
