Original Wood Sidewalk Unearthed at McGillycuddy House

In addition to the restoration of the McGillycuddy House, work is being done on preserving the original wood sidewalk. According to the Rapid City Journal, the sidewalk, dating back to the 1800s, was found last summer. Archaeologists are working at extracting the sidewalk without damaging it.

Valentine McGillycuddy served many roles in early South Dakota, including time as mayor of Rapid City. Past news articles on him and his house can be found in our online archive.
