Turtle Soup - "Black Hills Corporation"

January 11, 2019  12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Feed your mind and your belly with the Turtle Soup Story Series. Turtle Soup stories feature a presentation on historic Black Hills figures or events along with a bowl of soup provided by Angel’s Catering.

Our first story of 2019 is called "Expanding the Energy Horizon: A History of Black Hills Corporation Since 1883," presented by Eric John Abrahamson, Ph.D. and Eric Steven Zimmer, Ph.D. 

Today, Black Hills Corporation has more than 1.25 million customers in eight states. The company traces its roots to a group of entrepreneurs who sought to bring a new and life-changing technology to Deadwood, South Dakota in the 1880s: electricity.

Over the next 135 years, dozens of electric and natural gas utilities combined to form the Black Hills Corporation we know today. In "
Expanding the Energy Horizon," historians Eric Abrahamson and Eric Zimmer tell how Black Hills Corporation's commitment to its core values has allowed it to meet many challenges over many generations while providing safe, reliable, and affordable energy to the communities it serves. 

This week's soup is broccoli cheddar, served by Angel's Catering.

Admission for Turtle Soup is $12 for adults, $10 for seniors and half-off for members.
