the black hills
The Black Hills are located in South Dakota, and partly in Montana. Gold was found their in 1876, and there was a large battle over the rich golden rock between the Indians and white men. The highest part of the Black Hills is Harney Peak which rises to 7,244 feet. The Black Hills are also home to Mount Rushmore. The area of the Black Hills is 5000 square miles. Most of the economy has shifted from natural resources, to lots of tourism.
