    Default Fun Facts

    I thought it would be fun to make a list of fun facts about South Dakota. I'll go first.

    Rumor has it that the tradition of spreading saw dust on the floors of bars and saloonsstarted in Deadwood, South Dakota due to the amount of gold dust that would fall on the floor. The saw dust was used to hide the fallen gold dust and was swept up at the end of the night.

    Now it's your turn. What fun fact can you come up with. Let's see how long we can make this list.
