Custer Park's New Visitor Center
Custer State Park will soon be getting a new visitor center.
The Daily Republic reports hat interviews will be conducted soon with officials from the top four of eight engineering firms that showed interest in the project.
Officials with the State Division of Parks and Recreation, says the timetable for the construction depends on how fast the South Dakota Parks and Wildlife Foundation can raise its pledged $1 million for the $3 million project.
The legislature appropriated $1.5 million for the project, and that money becomes available July 1st.
It has a two-year window in which it must be used, and the division will provide $500,000 from its next budget.
And one addition the new visitor center will feature is a movie theater to showcase the park's story.
