If you have always wanted to taste the ranch life like Nicole Kidman's character in the movie ?Australia,? then why not come and see this great place in South Dakota!
The Frawley Ranches in Lawrence County was built in the late 1800s at the climax of the gold rush in the said state. The property was made by Henry J. Frawley despite the uprising of Indians. The ranches were settled along routes of stagecoach and freight companies. By the time of the early 20th century, the property had four successful ranches, namely the Upper Ranch, the Lower Ranch, the East Ranch and the Middle Ranch. The Frawley Ranches also has a little schoolhouse, a huge courtyard barn and a dairy homestead among others.
Today, the 4,783-acre of land is a rare gem across America which holds carefully preserved memorabilia and furnishings of what life in the last two centuries had been. The property was declared a national historical landmark in 1977. Its historic sites are occasionally available to the public.
