High Plains Western Heritage Center
Founded in the 1970s by two local ranchers, the High Plains Western Heritage Center honors the old west pioneers of South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana, Wyoming and Nebraska with a furnished log cabin, rural schoolhouse and antique saddle and blacksmith shop.
Longhorn steers roam the surrounding pastures during the summer months.
Inside the center, visitors can enjoy monthly live Western music and poetry shows in a spacious theatre and visit the transportation room, home to a stagecoach, chuckwagon, buggies and sleighs. Displays honor Native American lore, cowboy culture and the mining and forestry industries. The center’s bookstore and gift shop offer a piece of history to take home with western literature, handcrafted jewelry, artwork and souvenirs.
