A Rapid City history group is dedicating a marker honoring President Calvin Coolidge's time spent in the Black Hills.
Historic Rapid City will unveil the plaque commemorating Coolidge's Summer White House executive office in Rapid City on Wednesday afternoon. The marker features photos of Coolidge High School, Coolidge and his wife, Grace.
Rapid City High School was constructed in 1922 and renamed Coolidge High School after it served as the president's executive office. An addition was built in 1937, and that building now serves as the Rapid City Performing Arts Center.
Historic Rapid City's Dan Daly says Coolidge's time in South Dakota is an interesting side note in the history of the Black Hills.
