to Hot Springs Chamber of Commerce PO Box 342 | 801 S. 6th Street Hot Springs, SD 57747 (605) 745 4140 Chamber of Commerce Relocation Guide

The warm, clear water of Fall River, formed at the north end of the city by the combining of brooks tumbling out of Hot and Cold Brook canyons, hastens down one side of the principal business street; built on the old canyon floor. The waters never freeze and vivid green watercress grows throughout the year while fish and waterfowl bask in the pools through winter and summer. Hot Springs is the only place in South Dakota that can boast of having thermal springs…no bubbling cauldron sends forth sulphuric vapor; no scalding geyser or mud volcano fills the air with steam or chokes the individual with foul gases.

This charming community is ideally situated and equipped by nature as a Mecca for health and recreation seekers. Bathe, play, convalesce in the Southern Black Hills, in the vale of Hot Springs.

According to legend, the Lakota first discovered the warm mineral springs which mark the site of this city. Included in the Louisiana Purchase of 1803 and the Dakota Territory in 1861, the "Minnekahta" area was ceded to its early inhabitants in 1866 as part of the "Great Sioux Reservation".

First called Minnekahta, which is the native word for “warm waters” the town was platted in 1881 and three years later named Hot Springs.

In the fall of 1894, the first high school opened its doors to about 40 students. The building, erected on a hill overlooking Hot Springs, is still in use today as the Pioneer Museum. As time passed, they soon outgrew the meager ten rooms. The school board then purchased new quarters from the Black Hills College, which lay across the canyon on the opposite hill. In 1924, the old college building burned down and plans were made to construct a modern new building the following year. In the first graduating class, four boys and one girl claimed honors, while the class of 1946 boasted fifty graduates. The current enrollment is around 807 students within a K 12 setting.
