Campbell Straw Bale Built Museum
206 Main Street W,
Carthage, SD 57323
Opened in 2004, the Campbell Original Straw Bale Built Museum is a special museum dedicated to preserving South Dakota history and teaching about being green the old fashioned way. It is located in the small town of Carthage, approximately 50 miles north of Interstate 90. What makes the museum especially unique is that it is completely insulated with homegrown South Dakota material - 1,300 straw bales - some of which can be seen through 'truth windows.' The gift shop has many gifts and souvenirs that are made in South Dakota, including Corn Cob Jelly and Carthage Prairie Honey. The museum is open weekends from late May (Memorial Day) through early September (Labor Day), but you can visit the museum year-round if you call ahead.
