Saturday night, June 24: The opening night of Black Hills Opry was a hit. The crowd hooted and hollered and applauded Aces & Eights trio with featured guest artists Gumbo Lily of the West. There were lots of laughs, and guests enjoyed taking photos and talking with the musicians after the show. Thank you all for attending.
The next show is July 29 at 7:00 pm with Paul Larson and Allen & Jill Kirkham!
Restoration consultant (and former Homestake engineer) Jerry Aberle works diligently with restoration sidekick and HHOH facility manager Dennes Barrett, (formerly Black Hills Power serviceman) with special paint work by Chad Aberle of Avid Painting. All three men are from Lead, SD. This project was funded and completed because of an anonymous donation in honor of Jim Dunn who worked for Homestake for 38 years, and his sweet wife Betty, both of Lead, SD. The project was also supported by an Outside of Deadwood grant from Deadwood Historic Preservation. Thank you all so much.
Thanks to our annual 2017 members who keep our building going, and to our Facility Manager Dennes Barrett and our Custodial Expert Kaylee Linn for making sure the building always looks good for our visitors, tenants, families and friends.

The HHOH business office hours are 9:00 am - 3:00 pm Monday-Friday and the office is located in the rear of the building on Julius Street.
