The pen that President Benjamin Harrison used to sign proclamations to create the states of South Dakota and North Dakota is on display in Pierre.
The state says after the Nov. 2, 1889, signing, the pen was given to a land agent and eventually handed down to the sister of Jim Larson's great-grandmother. He was South Dakota's centennial director in 1989 and got the family to donate the pen to the South Dakota State Historical Society.
It's currently on display at the South Dakota Cultural Heritage Center in Pierre.
