Home Build Lots For Sale In Meade County, SD




In the years following the Homestead Act of 1862, Americans moved westward and Dakota Territory came alive as new homesteads covered the prairie. These early settlers chased down dreams of a new life and new home, bringing with them an indomitable spirit of courage.

On the edge of South Dakota’s Black Hills, the Piedmont Valley Foothills became home to many new homesteaders who not only cultivated the land, but a vibrant community as well. While more than a century has passed since the pioneering days, there are certain things that time cannot change.

One pioneering family’s travels brought them to the Piedmont Valley foothills,  where they found a land of beauty and promise. Bearing evidence of rich history and times past, teepee rings covered the nearby hills and old ox and mule shoes were reminiscent of the 19th century thoroughfare. This land had at one time been home to a post office and store, and served as a stopping place for freight en route to Deadwood.

They put down roots and built community at the corner of what is now Elk Creek Road and Erickson Ranch Road.  In time this property became known as the AR Ranch.

Despite the dramatic improvements in local infrastructure and residential expansion from Rapid City, the area has remained a peaceful spot where the Piedmont Valley foothills and prairie meet.

Today a portion of the AR Ranch has become AR Ranch Estates, offering residential lots and homes on acreages.  Located six miles north of Rapid City off Erickson Ranch Road, the AR Ranch Estate’s expansive Black Hills views and protected valley provide the serenity of country living just ten minutes from Rapid City. The AR Ranch estates honors the pioneering heritage of its past and welcomes a new community.
