About the owner: About the owner: We live in the Black Hills of South Dakota in a place known as the Stratobowl. This geological wonder is carved from the combined effects of water erosion and the uplift of a fault line in the rugged Spring Creek canyon. Secluded and idyllic, the property is reminiscent of another era. Maybe it is the silence, the old limestone cliffs, or the song of the creek meandering through the seasons. As these ancient voices surround us, we breathe in all the natural beauty. Peace melts into our being and comes out as creative expressions. When the moon is full, the canyon becomes an illuminated, mystical experience. That is why, at one time, this place was named 'Moon Valley'. Then, in 1934 and 1935, the Army Air corps and National Geographic Society launched manned balloon flights into the stratosphere from here. It was then, that the family field acquired its new name of 'The Stratobowl' while becoming the birth place for the space age.
Why the Owner Chose Rapid City, SD, USA:
This specific home was built by our grandparents, Lawrence and Betty Jacobson in 1950. It has recently been renovated. With great pleasure, we share this property with guests from around the world.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home is one level. It has an attached garage to protect your vehicle, and the swimming hole in the backyard is one of a kind. This is truly THE Black Hills experience.
