Each time I drive through South Dakota I wish I had more time to stop and spend a few hours at the 1800 Town in Murdo. This is a very cool reconstructed town filled with buildings and artifacts from the 1800’s.
Also at the the 1800 Town is a museum filled with memorabilia from the shooting of the Kevin Costner movie Dances With Wolves.
On my trip this past fall I had just enough time to stop and spend about an hour. Not really enough time but I had been driving the hours and the light was perfect. So I stopped and did the best I could with the short amount of time available to me.
If you are going to be traveling through South Dakota stop by the 1800 Town in Murdo and check it out. It’s a lot of fun. Here is the web address should you want to check it out: www.1880town.com
Also included in this gallery are a few images from the Mount Rushmore area.
