“Sleep inside a restored grain elevator”
Guests can sleep inside a refurbished tin shed at the 1907 Herrick Elevator, which was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2003. Owner Barb White, a high-school teacher, and her husband, Bill, a long-haul truck driver, bought the grain elevator in 2001. Barb said more than 100 grain elevators a year are disappearing, so they felt it was important to preserve history. “When we renovated, we decided to keep it as original as possible so it could tell its own story,” Barb said. “We thought that offering lodging would be a good way to repurpose the elevator.” The bed-and-breakfast has five bedrooms, three full baths, a kitchen and a large, comfortable loft area to gather and relax, which makes it perfect for youth groups and family gatherings. It will sleep up to 22 people. The Herrick Elevator is considered a specialty resort because the owners don’t live on the premises. Attractions in the area include the Fort Randall Historic Restoration Chapel and cemetery; Marty Indian School, a K-12 boarding school run by the Yankton Sioux Tribe; St. Paul’s Church; the 99th Meridian (boundary for an 1868 treaty); and Milk’s Camp, site of an annual traditional powwow.
