What leads to the birth of a town? How is it that some towns see a boom and then years later some of those once-thriving communities go through a demise or become a ghost town?

SDPB's Stephanie Rissler Investigates South Dakota's towns of yesterday in a new documentary, Vanished South Dakota. It premieres Monday, August 19 at 7:00 p.m. on SDPB-TV. Special screenings are being held in Brookings, Mitchell, Vermillion and Sioux Falls prior to the television premiere.
