The property is located in northern Ziebach County, SD near the unincorporated communities of Thunder Butte, located in the northwest corner of Ziebach County, and Glad Valley, located on South Dakota Highway 20, 17 miles west of Isabel.

Ziebach County is part of the Great Plains and is characterized by rolling grasslands and numerous buttes. Almost the entire county lies within the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation.
Named for Frank M. Ziebach, a political figure in the Dakota Territory during the territorial period from 1861 to 1889, Ziebach County was officially a made county in 1911. In the 20th Century, cattle were raised in substantial numbers, but when the railroad bypassed the area this industry declined. Also known as “Wakinyan Paha” to the Lakota, its religious and cultural significance to the Lakota goes back further in time.
Thunder Butte forms the highest point of elevation in Ziebach County, and lies on the drainage divide between the Grand River, to the north, and the Moreau River to the south; both rivers drain eastward to the Missouri. The butte is located about 75 miles west of the Missouri River, and about 105 miles northeast of the Black Hills, (as the crow flies).
The landmark holds strong historical significance, and has long stood as a geographical reference point. Thunder Butte has strong historical ties to the Lakota Sioux tribe, dating back to 1776, French fur-traders, white settlers alike.
Literary references to Thunder Butte appear in the story of Hugh Glass, a mountain man/trapper whose nearly deadly encounter with a grizzly bear in 1823 left him stranded and alone. After reviving, he crawled 80-100 miles from the Grand River to the Cheyenne River over a period of six weeks, using the Thunder Butte landmark to guide him.
Ziebach County is now home to 2,413 residents. The area is home to a strong farming and ranching community, agricultural industry, and rich cultural history.
The many river breaks, creeks and draws of northern Ziebach County provide cover for abundant populations of white-tailed deer, mule deer, antelope, sharp-tailed grouse, and turkey.
