Community Info

It was gold that brought the first settlers to Custer County, as they followed the wagon tracks of the 1,000-strong 1874 Expedition led by Lt. Col. George A. Custer. But it is other, less tangible lures that entice residents to the area today: spectacular scenery, a wide variety of recreational opportunities, world-class attractions, a healthy environment, a sense of community and an indefinable essence, which is often described as an aura of spirituality.

Surrounded by 1.2 million acres of the Black Hills National Forest, Custer City has three city parks, ball fields, horseshoe pits, volleyball and tennis courts, community swimming pool, nine-hole public golf course, disc golf course, skateboard park and aerobics/activities at the YMCA.

For those of us who are fortunate enough to live and work here, it truly is the gold at the end of the rainbow.
