An Old West Town (circa 1880)

As we travelled west through South Dakota I was intrigued with signage along the highway, so we stopped and check out this "old west town". It's located on Interstate 90, exit 170 just 22 miles west of Murdo, South Dakota and worth the $10 per person admission.

South Dakota's Original 1880 TOWN has more than 30 buildings from the 1880 to 1920 era, authentically furnished with thousands of relics, historical accounts and photographs, a Casey Tibbs exhibit, Dances with Wolves movie props, and fun activities for kids. Karen and I spent about an hour walking the exhibits and examining the artifacts.

Well worth the stop and the admission. If you are interested in the history of the old western I would recommend taking the time to check it out.
