Rapid City Implement Co. opened in 1907 at the northwest corner of Main and Eighth Streets (Mount Rushmore Road). This building is long gone: As farm equipment became more sophisticated, not to mention big, dealers needed more space. And as Rapid City grew, so did demand for downtown property.
Today The Rushmore Hotel sits on this corner. And the corner where the horseshoe match is going on is now Kol Restaurant. (Unfortunately, we don't have any information about the horseshoe players.) Rapid City Implement sold McCormick, Deering, Chrysler, Cadillac, Chalmers and Maxwell equipment.
