Yes, there are a number of areas that are going through population decline and consolidation, but there are other areas up there that are holding their own and actually growing. With a lot of these rural areas, there is less of a need to have as many farms and small towns with the advent of tractors and techonology requiring less farm labor.
Sad thing is, the de-population and hard hit the esteem of the locals and they have no clue about the saying," If you buildit, they will come". They only think they have nothing to offer, causing them to not see the simple life they lead is a great offer to the people of the crazy world....
