(S.D.)- Plaque To Commemorate Coolidge's Rapid City Stay
RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A plaque commemorating former President Calvin Coolidge's use of an old Rapid City school building in the 1920s will be put on display in September.
Historic Rapid City president Jean Kessloff says that the plaque was created two years ago, but officials have been waiting to put it up until completion of a Rapid City High School addition.
Coolidge spent about three months in the Black Hills and in Custer State Park at the Game Lodge in the summer of 1927, and he used the old school building as his executive office.
Destination Rapid City paid $2,200 for the plaque.
