It comes close to being a ghost town. The population is in the single digits, like three people. Most of the time they can't remember how they got here. Their answer to why they stay depends almost entirely on the time of day.
Tourists come and tourists go. The main attraction is an old grocery store that the doors were locked up on back in the 1950s. Years passed, the century rolled over. The goods inside the store are remarkably preserved and this crazy idea bloomed: "This place ought to be a museum."
This dog sled is ready to haul out and take for a spin.
The shelves in the store look very much as they did the day the doors were closed.
