Carthage, SD

The Campbell Original Straw Bale Built Museum is a special museum dedicated to preserving South Dakota History, and teaching you about being green in the old fashioned way. It is located in the small town of Carthage, South Dakota, located approximately 50 miles north of Interstate 90, deep in the heart of rural South Dakota.

As well as hosting an assortment of historical exhibits, the museum is also used to hold educational meetings and host various cultural events. But what makes the museum what it really is, is that it is completely insulated with home-grown South Dakota material - STRAW.
