This was one of the highlights to our trip to the Dakotas. This place is so authentically a town from the old west, and only 4 miles out of Custer on Hwy 16. It shouldn't be missed! We spent almost 2 hours there and loved it all. Can't believe people lived the way they did in the late 1800's. I... More

On our way back from Jewel Cave, my daughter and I stopped at the Four Mile Old West Town on a whim. It was one of the best hours in our whole week in South Dakota. We were greeted by Mary and we delighted in the narrated tour of the old town she and her family have created. It was... More

Our cabin was located behind this attraction so we decided to check it out since it was later in the day and it was still open. It was worth stopping at for us. My children are 2 and 7 and they thought it was cool and enjoyed walking around and listening to the walking tour.

Save your money, even though it is only $5 to get in. You enter and there are a couple of kids inside the building that belong to the lady at the counter. You are handed a old tape recorder with a narrative tape about the town and building. Again, save your money.

We spent about two hours here, on a side trip from the Black Hills. I could definitely tell the work that the proprietor and her husband had put into the place over the years...but with his passing, appears that the required work is a little more than the owner could handle. The 'near' part of the town is in pretty... More

A cassette player audio guides you through the town and fort where Four Mile stagecoach stop once stood. Interesting, with lots of props and history.

When you first arrive you are greeted by a very friendly lady. She will give you the rundown of the history. It cost five dollars and you get a tape recording machine that gives you a narrative as you go in through each building. When you first exit the building that you buy your ticket from you will come to... More

My kids were fascinated with all of the antique things. They had a ton of questions. Very educational. Could be a little cleaned up, but it still has a lot of history behind it.

What a great piece of American history. Self guided tour. The owner is a real gem. Loved it so much we went there twice. The teenagers even liked it :)

If you really want to experience the old Wild West and it's history then this is the place to visit. Everything is authentic and the history about the area is great. Well worth the visit.
