South Dakota's Old Governor's Mansion has found a new home and a new assignment.

South Dakota's Old Governor's Mansion has found a new home and a new assignment. Built in 1937, close to the State Capitol in Pierre, it was uprooted in 2003 when the state replaced it with a 73-room building on the same site. It was put on blocks for three years outside the city, until a retired dentist bought it, moved it to Rapid City, restored it and is renting it out as an event center. He held an open house in July with live music, helicopter rides, a car show and tours. For $20 people could wander the mansion's halls for a day and contemplate its former glory.
