Day 17 – De Smet, SD

The Surveyor's House - the oldest building in De Smet.

The Surveyor’s House – the oldest building in De Smet.

We venture into De Smet itself, and find the other gem of the town, the Surveyor’s House and buildings more closely associated with the Ingalls. But the hour is late, and everything is closed, so we drive to Brookings for our hotel, and resolve to return the next day.

It is just as well – during the night, a tempest struck the down, downing branches and trees that made the news the following day.
