Kiddville was a small mining camp in the days of the settlement of the Black Hills. It was then abandoned after the gold rush. The vacation home originally was the two story miner's boarding house. The house was converted and re-modeled into a family home in the 1930's, and the property became a private, 38 acre, ranch/homestead. And, again, in 2007 the home was updated with new plumbing, carpet, beds,...
The second floor of the Vacation Home hosts the three bedrooms and the full bath. The main floor consists of a living room, kitchen, dining room, laundry area, porch, and small sun room.
The original homesteader/ranchers from the 1930's lived in the house for 75 years till 2007! The home is located on 38 privately owned acres with no visable neighbors. Solitude for you!
This acreage is located in the heart of excellent National Forest deer/turkey/elk country. There are no other inhabited dwellings on the 38 acre property.
Historic buildings on the property are a mine assay office, caretaker's house, a barn/corral, and cabin.

This is a photo of my parents and your hosts, John and Kay. The vacation property was Kay's childhood home. We wish to share this fantastic location with its unique history with you!
The homesteaders of the 1930's were my grandparents and the property is a treasured part of the family that we wish to keep. It is our hope that it will become one of your valued memories as well as you stay at an original Black Hills Gold Mining Camp and homestead. Though the house is completely modernized, it yet holds a peice of the past this is becoming difficult to find. Each of the old buildings has a sign on the door telling what part it played in the old west.
The home is on a deadend driveway, so you will have no traffic passing through. The houseyard is adjacent to Public Black Hills Forest land, so you may hike and explore to your heart's content! Wildlife visits regularly (deer, turkeys, elk, squirrels, songbirds,...). And if you have not experienced the clean smell of pine trees, you are in for a treat! The location is at 6000 feet altitude in the protected southern Hills, so the weather is the best you will find in these parts!
