Stopped by over 4th of July and enjoyed our visit, a pretty good value at $5 and our little kids were free. They had a blast looking in every single one of the little buildings. Evidently some of them (17 I think) are original structures. There are lots of cool antiques in each, it takes you back. We were given... More

It's not a 4 mile town, that's just the name of the old town. It's a ghost town located inside a large barricade. The buildings are much like they were when the town was alive. Admission is only $5 per adult and there is an old fashioned tape player to listen to the history as you walk around. Mostly an... More

This is a ghost town, you get a tape recording to follow through the town that tells you about each building. There is a general store, and several bunny's that run around the center of town. Had spoke to a woman in Custer who had taken her children and she said they enjoyed it. We were there on Friday evening... More

First the great: The people working there are fantastic. Super friendly. Our kid loved his complimentary sheriff's badge. The price is really cheap at only 5 bucks per person. Lots of buildings to see and lots to explore. You have the opportunity to learn a lot with the play along head set they loan you. Now the not so great:... More

I had the good fortune some years ago to visit the Four Mile Old West Town. This year I, again, had the opportunity to visit. The feeling of going back in time in the historic, beautiful Black Hills is still there. As I had in a previous year, I had to go to the second story balcony of the old... More

My 10 year old nephew liked it for the first 10 mins then got bored. The price wasn't that bad. The shop didn't have much to sell that a normal tourist would buy. I would skip it.

Needs a little upkeep, it was falling apart and signage is hard to read. The tape recorder narration has got to go. Owners are friendly and helpful, but the site isn't keeping pace with similar attractions.

We ran across this little town on our way to another site and decided to stop. It was odd to say the least. There are two people dressed in period costume who were almost desperate for visitors. We paid our money ($5 each I think) and were handed a tape recorder (yes, you heard me) to take along the route... More

If you like to take a peek at a time long since gone then this is the place for you! I loved the hands on approach this place takes. Lot of fun!

The cabin that we stayed in for our visit was located directly behind this attraction so when we wanted to do something later in the day we decided to go here since it was so close. It doesn't look like much from the outside but my 7yo and 2yo loved it. It all is very interesting and they provided a... More
