Community Voices – Looking Down the Tracks: Dakota Railroad Photography
Rapid City, SD – December 29, 2014 – Don’t miss the train!
On Thursday, January 8 from 6 – 7:30 p.m. upstairs at the downtown library (610 Quincy St.), we invite you to ‘hop on board’ for an informative and entertaining evening of railroading history and stories. Rick Mills, director of the South Dakota Railroad Museum in Hill City, will present railroad photos throughout the years featuring images of railroading in Rapid City and the surrounding area since the first ties and rails were laid in the 1870s. View photos of the Fremont, Elkhorn and Missouri Valley, the Crouch Line, the Chicago and North Western, and several others that have served the state in the past. Rick will also share images of today’s railroading and tell a few railroad stories. Be sure and bring your own family railroad memorabilia and remembrances to share.
This program was made possible with a grant from the South Dakota Humanities Council, an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
The Rapid City Public Libraries have served the Rapid City area since 1879, and now have three locations, the downtown library at 610 Quincy Street, the north partner library within General Beadle Elementary School at 10 Van Buren Street, and the east partner library at Western Dakota Tech at 800 Mickelson Drive. All offer print and electronic resources for adults, young adults and children, as well as computers, internet access and a variety of programs and events. In March 2008, USA Today named the Rapid City Public Libraries’ downtown library as one of the nation’s 10 greatest places to “Find a Nook and Read a Book.”
The best place to read and stay you up to date on all the wonderful things happening at The South Dakota State Railroad Museum in Hill City.
