Custer

The city of Custer covers 2.54 square miles of the southwestern Black Hills and is the county seat of Custer County.

The city of Custer was staked out in 1875. But when gold was discovered in Deadwood Gulch, 56 miles to the north, the gold boom busted, and Custer city became a near ghost town overnight.
