Oil Boom Resurrects North Dakota Ghost Town

DORE, N.D. (AP) — For more than three decades, Kerry and Darrell Finsaas were all that kept this blink-and-you-miss-it North Dakotacommunity from becoming completely deserted.
As Dore's only residents, they lived in a ghost town on the desolate northern Plains. But now the couple has neighbors — and lots of them. The all-but-forgotten former farming village has been reborn as a hub of oil activity. And it may not be the last abandoned settlement to be resurrected from the dust.
