Nostalgia for the ‘good old days’ can certainly be
satisfied at the Pioneer Auto Museum, located in Murdo, South
Dakota, at the junction of I-90 and U. S. 16 and 83.

The Museum has ten acres of exhibits which cover every aspect of
life in the early 1900’s. Of special interest are various
transportation displays from horse-drawn buggies and stage coaches,
to classic cars (including Tom Mix’s Packard and a Chicago
gangster’s 30’s roadster!), to tractors and other examples
of farm equipment.

Our readers will be interested in the J. I. Case engine shown
which still runs and blasts forth smoke and noise as a reminder of
farming days of old.

More information on this museum can be obtained from Dave
Geisler (whose family founded the museum in the 50’s), P. O.
Box 76, Murdo, South Dakota 57559.
