Today's post is Part 4 & the final post of our recent visit to Four Mile Old West Town, named because of the distance from Custer on the original Sidney Black Hills Stage Road. The Sidney Black Hills Stage Road or Route was a trail connecting Sidney, Nebraska, Sidney Barracks, and the Union Pacific Railroad with Fort Robinson, Red Cloud Agency, Spotted Tail Agency, Custer City, Dakota Territory, and Deadwood, Dakota Territory between 1876 and 1887.

The museum offers 50 authentically furnished buildings that date back to the gold rush days of the Black Hills. Staged to give visiting families an understanding of how early settlers once lived, a self-guided cassette tour took us on a walk along the Boardwalks, stone walkways, grass paths and even a walk next to original wagon ruts. We visited the Town Hall, Saloon, General Store, Church, Bank, a Talking Outhouse, The Sheriff's Office and a Dakota Territory Jail among others. Many of the buildings are original historical structures. Hope you enjoyed checking this attraction out. If you get in the area it's definitely worth the $5.00 admission. You'll enjoy meeting Mary & other members of the family too. They've done a great job keeping this open for all to see :)
