A ThAnk-You noTe from VAlenTine mcGillYcuddY From the 1870s to the late 1890s, Valentine McGillycuddy played an important role in the history of the Black Hills and the West. He was a doctor, surveyor, Indian agent, politician, educator, banker and a key promoter of electrical power in the Black Hills. He was the Army doctor who treated a dying Crazy Horse. Although he left the Black Hills more than 100 years ago, his legacy lives on in the McGillycuddy House, the stately stoneand-stick structure at South Street and Mount Rushmore Road. SAVe The dATe — mAY 25! Historic Rapid City, the nonprofit preservation group, has taken on the daunting task of restoring the McGillycuddy House to its original glory. With generous donations of money, materials and time, our Black Hills community has taken us within reach of that goal. On Saturday, May 25, Historic Rapid City is throwing a thank-you party at the McGillycuddy House. We’ll have treats, tours and other activities. Check out our Facebook Page for details.
