The Historic Small Town That Every South Dakotan Should Visit At Least Once

If you read the Little House on the Prairie books by Laura Ingalls Wilder, or watched the television show when you were a child, you were probably fascinated by the way of life in the late 1800s. There’s a historic town in South Dakota that still embraces that time, and every South Dakotan should visit it at least once.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
