Long Description:
Included in those sq. mi.: exceptional corn land in the SE, grass land in the W, wheat land in the N, and productive land all over.

Harney Peak, at 7,247 feet is the highest point in the U. S. A. east of the Rockies. The Black Hills, 'The American Alps,' are scenically unsurpassed, and are the richest '100 mile square' minerally in the world. Mt. Rushmore, 'The Shrine of Democracy' is visited by hundreds of thousands annually. The Badlands are weirdly beautiful and undeniably bad.

Annually, it rands in the first 10 states in the production of wheat, corn, oats, barley, rye, grass, and cattle. Its Homestake Mine is the greatest gold producer in the western hemisphere.

South Dakota is 'economically, physically, recreationally' a State of 'Infinite Variety.' Its economy is well balanced.

First visited by White men, Verendrye, in 1745, for a century it was a fur traders paradise with a most romantic history.

Its highways are well marked; roadside parks frequent; historic markers, such as this one, are to be found therein and adjacent to historic sites.

Our Motto, 'Under God The People Rule' is symbolic of life in South Dakota.
