Galena South Dakota History can be experienced first hand once every year. Every summer the local historical society welcomes the public for their one-day annual fund raiser. Proceeds support the up keep of the school house.
This is your chance to get a feel for the Galena Community profile over the years. The self-guided trail is over five miles long. You can explore as little or as much of the historic trail as you’d like. With locals placed around the trail and many historic photos – this is an educational tour.
Galena weather can quickly change. Be sure to bring a rain coat and wear comfortable shoes. The trails are a bit steep in locations, a walking stick may be a good idea as well. Refreshments are sold on site.
You will find Galena in Lawrence County south of Deadwood in the South Dakota Black Hills. It is just a few miles off US Highway 385.
The 2013 Galena Historical Tour is planed for Saturday June 8th. Visit the School House website for complete information.
