The Sanford Lab opened a new visitor center in Lead South Dakota Tuesday. More than 750 people showed up for a building dedication ceremony featuring guest speakers and a ribbon cutting.
As the building dedication began, guests gathered on the observation deck of the new Sanford Visitor Center, directly overlooking the open-cut. The Center features exhibits that tell the history of the Homestake goldmine. Governor Dennis Daugaard was the featured speaker. He says the new Visitor Center doesn’t just showcase the past.
