South Dakota’s Original 1880 Town – Murdo, SD

What started as a movie set slowly grew into the attraction now known as 1880 Town. The majority of the historically correct buildings were relocated to an 80 acre lot owned by Richard Hullinger to add to the attraction, which consists of a long main street with a church at the end, as well as train tracks just ‘outside of town’, with a collection of old steam engines.

The entrance is a museum with a wonderful collection of 1880’s memorabilia, and you thread your way through this before you reach the entrance to the town. Upstairs is also an exhibit of sets from Dances With Wolves. It was a rainy day, so I opted to take pictures with my iPhone instead of the Nikon this time, so the images aren’t as crisp as usual.

It was a fun tour, albeit quick, due to the weather.
