A long-running bookmobile built in 1963 is still on the job for the Potter County Free Library in Gettysburg, South Dakota. The bookmobile used to run a circuit between country schools but now spends most of it's time serving the county's small communities. Here's a look at a bookmobile stop in Hoven, a town of about 400 people.
Watertown retailer and developer Charles Goss had the building bearing his name erected in 1888. When the Goss Opera Hall opened in 1889, it provided retail and office space and a 1500-seat theater. It was the largest theater in South Dakota at the time. Changing times contributed to the building's long, gradual decay.
