Dummer, Saskatchewan Revisited

Dummer is one of my favourite ghost towns to visit. It is a true ghost town; deserted with several buildings to explore and photograph. My first trip to the hamlet was in August of 2010. I toured Dummer again in the summer of 2018. Obviously the structures were deteriorating due to age, weather, and neglect. However, I was sad to see buildings vandalized, expediting their ruin. There was evidence of drinking and purposeful destruction. One house was demolished – although I don’t know if it was due to arson or the rural municipality leveling it. I understand that ghost towns are not protected as historical or heritage sites but I would prefer to see them decline casually and naturally.
