Wall Drug Store

Work description

Wall Drug Store is a famous roadside attraction located in western South Dakota, near the Black Hills and Badlands National Park. One of the world’s most well-known tourist attractions, it’s hard to believe Wall Drug Store got its start with something many wouldn’t even turn their heads at today...the promise of free ice water. But in fact, the Husteads [Founders] turned free ice water into a million-dollar idea with a little determination, quick thinking and a lot of signs. Located in Wall, South Dakota, Wall Drug has always been a popular stop on the road to the more populated areas like Mount Rushmore or Rapid City.
