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.

We went to the 4 mile and got a great tour for $5 The staff gives guests a tape recorder that narrates the history of each house. This is a long tour and well worth the money. Lots of artifacts.

Reasonably priced at $5 each. 14yr old history buff loved it. It is a nice way to understand what life was like in the old west. We squeezed it in since we had time to kill and were staying close in custer. Just don't sacrifice any of the other fantastic activities in the area to go.

Do not miss this place while in the Black Hills. You will experience "hands on" history right in the middle of wonderful scenery where the historic events took place. The operators of this attraction are dressed in period clothing and have a great knowledge of the history of this old town. Well worth the admission price.

We read about 4-Mile Ghost Town in the book, Ghost Towns of the Black Hills. Since we've had a great time searching for other ghost towns in the Black Hills, we thought we would give this place a shot. It was not what we expected. Though the book said that the town was now a tourist site, we thought we... More

This is a hidden gem! What am amazing place to visit. The kids were able to truly experience how people use to live. It is rough and rustic.... But that is the point! Great place to visit! So happy we decided to stop and visit!
