As we travel across South Dakota for our upcoming Vanished South Dakota documentary, we are learning many fun and interesting facts along the way. See if you know some of the more obscure trivia from these lost towns!
SDPB's newest documentary, VANISHED SOUTH DAKOTA: TOWNS OF YESTERDAY, is now in production with a release date in 2019. The documentary will tell the stories of the many towns which were once thriving centers of commerce but have since nearly (and in some cases totally) disappeared from the map. We are interviewing historians, town elders and those who stories have intersected with these now-lost centers of community life in South Dakota.
The public is invited and encouraged to share their stories, photos and video with us. In addition to the documentary itself, we are planning on producing an extensive collection of digital short video and blogs to accompany it.
