SCHS IS FOUNDED
Since 1964 the Volunteer Fire Department has managed the community buildings, land, services, and even community social events. In an effort to allow the Fire Department to focus on its mission, the Historical Society was created in 2014 to take over some of these other activities. A group of residents with common interests were the charter members of the Society.
The SCHS maintains and manages the Cemetery, the Historic Schoolhouse, the chruch and the gardens.
CHURCH IS TRANSFERRED TO SCHS
After securing permission from the Diocese of Rapid City, the church is transferred to the SCHS from the Fire Department.
