Center of the Nation Visitor Center/Tri-State Museum

In 2014, the Center of the Nation Visitor Center and the Tri-State Museum came under the same management.  This was quite handy as they were always located in the same building. They are located at 415 5th Avenue, Belle Fourche, SD along the Belle Fourche River.  Also in this location is the Center of the Nation Monument and the Avenue of State Flags.

The Center of the Nation Visitor Center is a hub for information on the area, home to the historical Johnny Spaulding's Cabin, the Center of the Nation Monument and a beautiful place for a rest in your journey.  They also are the ticket sales office for the 4th of July Black Hills Roundup Rodeo.

The Tri-State Museum is right next door with their changing displays, mini-exhibits and gift shop.
