1880 Town is a family-owned and operated heritage village that allows visitors to step back in time and learn about what life was like for South Dakota pioneers. The town has more than 30 original buildings from the years 1880-1920, including a farm, a blacksmith shop, a saloon, a one-room schoolhouse, a church, a jail, a post office, and a bank. There is a museum about Casey Tibbs, an area man who was World Champion Rodeo Cowboy nine times.
In the main building are dozens of props from the Academy Award winning film, Dances with Wolves, which was shot in the town and the surrounding countryside. Hungry visitors will appreciate the 1950s railway dining car, a former Santa Fe train turned into a diner serving breakfast, lunch, and dessert, and decorated with 1950s memorabilia.
