The Journey Museum to open a new exhibit on local businesses

RAPID CITY, SD — The Journey Museum will be featuring a new exhibit beginning on Friday called “The Business of Business: A salute to Rapid City’s entrepreneurs.”

The exhibition showcases 10 local businesses that have been operating for 50 years or more.

The 10 include Black Hills Energy, Brass Rail, Grimm’s Pump and Industrial Supply, Haggerty’s Musicworks, Montana-Dakota Utilities, Reptile Gardens, Royal Wheel Alignment, Servall Uniform and Linen Supply, Simpsons Printing, and Whisler Bearing Co.

These area businesses thrived, despite many experiencing setbacks from events like the 1972 Flood, World War II, and the Great Depression.

Opening night of the event will be Jan. 11 and will feature local business leaders along with the exhibit’s curators.

“The Business of Business” will be on display through April. It was made possible through collaboration with the Minnilusa Historical Association, an organization directed at preserving the Black Hill’s pioneer history.
