The Good Life

Belle Fourche, South Dakota is well known for its rodeos and western heritage.  On the 4th of July each year the city hosts the Black Hills Roundup Rodeo which attracts thousands of visitors.  

This town is also the geographic “Center of the Nation” for the 50 United States.  It is a recreational haven where the natural beauty of the rim of the Black Hills is laced by rivers that anchor themselves in western South Dakota’s largest reservoir.

Strong value systems, excellent education opportunities, and a low crime rate make Belle Fourche a wonderful place to raise children.
