One historical landmark you won't want to miss is the town of Deadwood. Back in 1870 Colonel George Armstrong Custer announced he had discovered gold in the creeks near what is now Custer, SD. The announcement triggered the Black Hills Gold Rush and led to the illegal settlement of Deadwood, which became a lawless town. Still today, the town's historic district maintains that outlaw charm
