Mitchell, SD

“The Mitchell Prehistoric Indian Village is the only archaeological site in South Dakota that is open to the public. The Village is an active research center and is a National Historic Landmark. Visitors to the site can see the many artifacts that have been excavated during the annual digs and they can tour the dig site itself in the comfort of the Thomsen Center Archeodome.”

The following morning Jim and Sherry and Tom and I went our separate ways.  Jim and Sherry had to return home early due to family obligations.  Tom and I are continuing to Potosi, WI, to meet up with our camping group for our monthly meeting.
