Construction has started on the State Game Lodge exterior renovation. To accommodate the Custer State Park peak tourist season, construction work will occur until mid-May. Contractors will break for the summer season and resume at the end of October.
The State Game Lodge is a native stone and wood lodge built in 1920 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It served as the “Summer White House” for President Calvin Coolidge in 1927 and was visited by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1953. And the Grace Coolidge Creek still serenely winds through the valley today.
