It’s exactly 100 years ago this month – Dec. 7, 1912.

In the Land Office in Pierre, South Dakota, Frank P. Carlisle is signing his name on official papers to show he has met the requirements to receive title to the parcel of land where he’s been living the past five years along the Bad River. He spells out that it’s the northeast quarter of Section 18, Township 4 North, Range 31 East, B.H. Meridian, containing 160 acres.

    [smile] Thanks to Lance and Jim Carlisle for sharing this grand bit of history. The Carlisle ranch and Jim Carlisle, are the continuing, living proof of what kind of dreams and vision genuine west river pioneers had when they settled the river valleys in South Dakota's earliest years. At the same time, they were able to develop a cordial relationship with certain members of the Sioux nation. All without malice, but rather a sense of belonging. A true, "prairie and sky" and "humanity" element of South Dakota history. Lonis Wendt
