Hot Springs SD Quilts

One of the pleasant surprises of my recent vacation was discovering the Pioneer Museum in Hot Springs, South Dakota. We went to Hot Springs to see the mammoth dig, but passed the entry to the museum on the way. So, after lunch, we made an unscheduled stop at the old school that served the community between 1893 and 1961. Now it is a museum packed full on four floors with one of the greatest collections of artifacts that I have ever seen.

Here is the link to their website:

Today I am focusing on some of the quilts in their collection. Unfortunately, the photographer (me) did not do all of the exhibits justice.
