Ghost Town in South Dakota, USA


I moved across the country almost 2 years ago from Nashua, New Hampshire to Seattle, Washington. I drove with a good friend and three ferrets in the back seat of my car in a carrier. We went from one end of Route 90 to the other. I fell in love with South Dakota, in a way. Most of it so desolate and eerie, and other parts so wonderful. I got to visit Laura Ingalls Wilder's homestead in DeSmet, Deadwood (where Wild Bill and Calamity Jane are buried), Sturgis (of course!), and lots of other places. I don't recall exactly where this was, but it would have been very close to Route 90 somewhere in South Dakota. I remember going to the one gas station that was the only one for miles around here, in this ramshackle building that housed a rock shop. I still have one stone that came from the Badlands. Enjoy the rest! It's a true ghost town, and the population used to be in the hundreds, and is now down to under 20. I wish I had documented more where this was.
