Cowboy Ghost Town

An attraction for amusement as well as history and educational purposes. Created by a former South Dakota and American West history teacher, Buffalo Ridge offers over 50 exhibits (some animated) depicting life in and history of the regional area and the American West. As you walk around the Ghost Town, you'll find something for all ages, from a buffalo herd to the area's largest souvenir and fireworks store. Be sure to stop by the coffee shop for a buffalo burger. Buffalo Ridge proves learning can be fun.
