Generally considered to be the oldest town established by European Americans in the Black Hills, Custer began as a mining town.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Vore Buffalo Jump and Mount Moriah Cemetery. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like The Museum @ Black Hills Institute and Days of '76 Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Insideout (in Hill City), Hot Springs (Angostura Recreation Area & Mammoth Site of Hot Springs) and Lead (Sanford Lab Homestake Visitor Center & Black Hills Mining Museum). The adventure continues: delve into the lush surroundings at Black Hills National Forest, immerse yourself in nature at Custer State Park, take in the dramatic natural features at Needles Eye Tunnel, and sample the tasty concoctions at Crow Peak Brewing Company.
