Dozens of small towns with populations of a few hundred to a few thousand are found throughout the southeast, and there are surprises in almost every one. Find a replica of the Eiffel Tower in Tyndall. The Dimock Dairy has been making fresh cheese since 1931. Stop by their new store along Highway 37 and sample the cheese curds (hear the squeak?). Tour America’s only museum built from straw bales in Carthage. More than 50 larger than life sculptures dot the prairie south of Montrose at the Porter Sculpture Park. Walk in the footsteps of Laura Ingalls Wilder as you tour her home and other De Smet locales that are featured in her “Little House” books. Think twice before you simply pass through a small town around here.
