Piedmont, SD

About PiedmontHorses of both the flesh-and-bones and iron varieties helped establish the town of Piedmont. The Sidney Stage Route made regular stops in the early 1880s, followed later in the decade by the Fremont, Elkhorn and Missouri Valley Railroad. Another local railroad, the Black Hills and Fort Pierre line, was used by the Homestake Mining Co. in Lead to carry lumber to its mine.

Although there are no mines in Piedmont, the area is known for its scattered crystalline caves. Also noteworthy is Bethlehem Road, west off I-90 exit 40 or 44, which affords views of Elk Creek Canyon, including the peak of Knife Blade Rock.
