Accord was originally named Port Jackson when it was founded and it is believed it was changed at the residents’ requests. Most of Accord’s residents are farmers and truckers. Accord has only over 500 residents today.

 

Girvin, Saskatchewan, Canada

It is unknown when Girvin was founded, but its pump house (not pictured) that once provided water for horses and is now a historical landmark, dates back to 1906 and is the only pump house in Saskatchewan. Girvin’s slogan is ‘here, people count’, though only 20 of those people do remain today. Girvin was officially dissolved as a village in 2005.
