The Old Courthouse, Sioux Falls

I was really excited about visiting the Old Courthouse Museum in Sioux Falls.  Built in 1893 of yep, Sioux Quartzite, the interior contained granite pillars, slate stairs, and stained glass windows.

When we opened the door to enter, however, we were blasted with the aroma of floors being refinished.  Such a shame, because the 2 minute look I got of the entryway was an eyeful.

As Wayne is fond of saying, something to see when we come back to the area again.  I won't forget to stop in again, hopefully not during another remodel!


  1. It's surprising they chose the middle of tourist season to remodel. I'm thinking it would have been better to do it in the dead of winter.
