  • This is a bit out of the way, but a little hidden piece of history. Great information about the early settler life, and really cool to see original buildings. Doesn't take long - 30 to 45 minutes, but...  more »
  • We visited on a day that it was windy and sprinkling rain off and on, so it was kind of dreary. However, my kids LOVED it. My daughter wanted to dress the part using the provided clothes kids can wear...  more »
  • Loved the history of the prairie house. Informative 10 minute movie, book with letters from the daughter & pictures of the family and neighbors. I think every teen should be subjected to 24hrs of prai...  more »

  • I was impressed to visit the historical site of homestead. other than that, I wasn't happy the customer service at the counter. There were two ladies working today, everything were fine until I started asking questions about the admission fee. $7 per person (adult) & $19 for a family. "How many people you count as a family?" I asked. A lady with short hair dye in black answered "4 in a group", another lady with gray hair answered but I forgot what she said, "5 of us in a group so do I need to pay $7 for extra person?" I asked again, the short black hair lady started becoming impatient, she said "total of $20.14; $19 plus tax" then she turned her face away and sighed never look at me again. Her co-worker didn't say much but nice was trying to help me. I wasn't sure what was the problem with the short black hair lady, maybe she had a bad day or I irritated her but she seemed to be nice to other customers who before me and after... smiling and chatting. Is she being racist?!!! i don't deserve to be treated like this! I spent 7 minutes at the historical site then left, no bye no thank you behind the door. I didn't feel welcome to this place, So I will not return to this shop ever again.
  • Costs to see prairie dogs and an old dugout home. Good for history buffs but otherwise expensive for a random stop. Nice little store here.
  • I love that history is preserved here. There isn't much to explore here though, and I wish there was more signs and info at each building.
  • Just a very cool surprise stop on our way through the Badlands! The prairie dogs were so fun! Very interesting to see what life would have been like during the early 1900s.
  • Whoa you did not want to have to do this irl.
