Your Black Hills explorations are even more meaningful when you become better acquainted with the colorful history. Where better than the 1881 Custer County Courthouse? The beautiful temple of justice, where many of our outlaws, scofflaws, politicians and local heroes gathered to sort out their differences, is now an interesting and thought-provoking museum. The courtroom remains intact. An entire room is devoted to Lt. Col. George Custer (see his hunting rifle!). Native American artifacts, wildlife, rocks and fossils, weaponry and gold mine antiques are all on exhibit.
