Tabor South Dakota

If you enjoy history and rural America then consider Bon Homme County in south eastern South Dakota. That's right folks. South Dakota is not just the Missouri River and the Black Hills although Bon Homme Country's southern boundary touches the Missouri.

One of many points of interest is Tabor South Dakota. For many of us native to South Dakota, Tabor is synonymous with the annual Tabor Czech Days but this small community has embraced its past and displays it proudly. The museums and square, accessible from Main Street, are a reminder of yesteryear. The school, church, and other buildings take you back in time.

Across the alley from the main square is the Emil Blachnik museum. The building itself is a country school, typical of the area and time. The contents are the incredible creations of an imaginative and clever resident of the community, Emil Blachnik. The caretakers of this museum, Evelyn and Emil Beran, offer an interesting and personal insight into the Mr. Blachnik's handcrafted displays. Evelyn is the daughter of Emil Blachnik and the school/museum rests in the yard of her childhood home and current residence. That is a story of significance in itself.

Consider Tabor South Dakota and all of Bon Homme County when you plan you next vacation.
