History, Geography, Homes, and State Resources of South Dakota
South Dakota is rich with early settler, fur trader and Native American history. Keep in mind, when you are told of rock stars located in the state near Mount Rushmore,
people are more than likely discussing the likenesses of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson and Theodore Roosevelt. And those are not the only historic
memories carved into the hillsides of South Dakota. Only few miles away from Mount Rushmore you'll find the the Memorial of Crazy Horse which has been undergoing
construction since 1948.within the Black Hills, Although no completion date has been set, it might well be the largest sculpture in the world when completed.
When relocating to South Dakota, there's many interesting towns and cities which you could call home. There’s Rapid City, the biggest and fastest expanding city, Sioux
Falls, the capitol of the state; Brookings and Aberdeen, both college towns. In addition you might consider Mitchell, with the famed Corn Palace; Watertown, a regional
retail and manufacturing hub; and Yankton,, Pierre, Huron and Vermillion.
Exploration of this area began in 1743 when Louis-Joseph and François Verendrye came from France in search of a route to the Pacific.
The U.S. acquired the region as part of the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, and it was explored by Lewis and Clark in 1804–1806. Fort Pierre, the first permanent settlement,
was established in 1817.
Settlement of South Dakota did not begin in earnest until the arrival of the railroad in 1873 and the discovery of gold in the Black Hills in 1874.
