Compiled by O. H. Holt

Spearfish, a town of much importance, is located on Spearfish creek (one of the largest streams in the Hills), in Lawrence county, about fourteen miles northwest of Deadwood, and near the foot of the celebrated Crow Peak, which rises probably 2,500 feet above the town. It is an important centre for the live-stock business, embraces several flourishing manufacturing industries, and has all the acquired advantages common to enterprising and progressive Western cities.
