Trust Gives $1 Million For Custer State Park Project

Trust Gives $1 Million For Custer State Park Project

A $1 million grant from a charitable trust will be used to build a new visitors center and theater at a state park in southwest South Dakota.

The grant from The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust will be spent in the Custer State Park project.

South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard on Friday said a local foundation will receive the grant.

Daugaard says visitors entering the park from the east will see the new facility near the game lodge and group camp area.
The project is expected to cost $5 million. The Legislature last year allocated $2 million. The South Dakota Parks and Wildlife Foundation pledged to raise private funds to meet the project's budget. The bridge work is part of the $18-million rebuilding of Russell Street that's expected to be completed in the fall, in time for the opening of the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center.
