A Little About Fall River County

Fall River County is best adapted for stock-raising, and that important industry is being rapidly and successfully developed. The curative properties of the Dakota Hot Springs, which are located in the northeastern part of the county, are rendering that locality quite a resort for invalids, and it is predicted that their healing qualities will eventually give the region a world-wide reputation.

(from "Dakota", compiled by O. H. Holt, 1885)
