“Where the Past is Present,” the Pioneer Museum located in Hot Springs, SD is home to countless treasures from Fall River County and beyond. Imagine your life over 100 years ago as you travel back in time. You and your family will be fascinated, and educationally entertained as you roam the halls of this 19th century sandstone school house. Handcrafted tools, old washing machines, wood cook stoves, and kerosene lamps the pioneer farmers and ranchers used in their daily lives are displayed here. When you view the doctor’s office you’ll almost smell the liniment! You’ll stand in an authentic nineteeth century classroom and visit a country store complete with supplies!
