Images of the Past returns to In the Moment.

There is no symbol of the past comparable to the stagecoach. This transportation method became essential in the 1800s, especially in the Black Hills area. The stagecoach era left a mark in almost every town and village during the “gold rush” of the Black Hills

Gary Enright, director of the 1881 Courthouse Museum in Custer, joined In The Moment for a look back at stagecoaches in South Dakota.
