From the bloggers at Gypsy Journal RV.
We love exploring America’s back roads and small towns and finding overlooked gems that the tourist brochures never cover. In a series of weekly blog posts we will be sharing some of America’s lesser-known small town museums, historic sites, and oddball attractions, on a state-by-state basis. We don’t have room to cover each and every attraction in every state, but hope to give you some ideas for places to see in your travels.
Aberdeen: The Dacotah Prairie Museum displays exhibits on the prairie, early settlers, their lives and lifestyles, and the railroad and its influence on settlement and Native American life.
Brookings: The South Dakota Agricultural Heritage Museum is dedicated to preserving the state’s rich agricultural history and rural heritage. Displays include farming equipment, a one room schoolhouse, a homestead shack, and a 1915 farmhouse.
Buffalo: The Buffalo Historical Museum and One-Room Schoolhouse preserves local history from the cattle ranch and homesteading eras in Harding County. The site features a one-room schoolhouse, built in 1914.
Carthage: The Campbell Original Straw Bale Built Museum is dedicated to preserving South Dakota History. As well as hosting an assortment of historical exhibits, what makes the museum special is that it is completely insulated with home-grown South Dakota straw!
