    Smile Griffin, North Dakota

    According to North Dakota Place Names, p. 81, the post office and Milwaukee Road railroad station was named Atkinson until February 10, 1908 when the name was changed to Griffin in honor of Henry T. Griffin, the Assistant General Passenger Agent for the railroad. A population of 67 was listed in 1930, but the post office closed March 31, 1930 with mail sent to Rhame, ND. According to the December 27, 1900 edition of The New York Times, "Henry T. Griffin has assumed the duties of Assistant General Passenger Agent of the Chicago, Milwaukee St. Paul Railway Company." I would be interested in any other information people might have about this ghost town.
