Claire City SD: The Little Town on the Prairie That Could

Claire City, SD celebrated its centennial from June 28-30th this year.  The little town of 76 has since cleared of the hundreds of visitors from that weekend, but the town founded in 1913 continues on.  This saturated shot just stands out to us about the importance of agriculture and the railroad in rural South Dakota.  

I think Senator John Thune said it best in his speech to Congress on June 25, 2013, 
"Located in Roberts County, Claire City possesses a strong sense of community that makes South Dakota an outstanding place to live and work. On August 15, 1913, many people gathered along the treeless prairie to buy lots for $100 to $600 in this new town named after Claire Feeney. Claire City has continued to be a strong reflection of South Dakota's greatest values and traditions. The community of Claire City has much to be proud of and I am confident that Claire City's success will continue well into the future."
