Turtle Soup - "Historic Stories"

May 3, 2019  12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Feed your mind and your belly with Turtle Soup, featuring a presentation on historic Black Hills figures or events and a bowl of soup provided by Angel’s Catering.

This week, Brittany Neiles and Pat Roseland present, "Historic Stories."

Rapid City has two historic districts - West Boulevard and Downtown. You’ll learn what living in a historic district would’ve meant to people around the turn of the 20th century and why people want to live there now.

Historic buildings contribute to the character of a city and provide economic benefits, and these areas continue to adapt to community needs.

“It’s just the perfect place to live,” says Roseland of the West Boulevard area.

It’s tough to maintain historic buildings with a push toward redevelopment. But preservation keeps the history alive and shows how towns were shaped.

Brittany Neiles joined the Rapid City Historic Preservation Commission in 2016 to feed her passion for history. She helped with the recent HPC downtown map project and enjoys learning new ways to help people engage with the history around them.

Pat Roseland is retired as a certified registered nurse of anesthesia at Regional Health Rapid City Hospital. He’s been involved with the historic preservation commission since 2000. He is also president of the West Boulevard Historic Neighborhood Association and president of the Minnilusa Historical Association.

Admission for Turtle Soup is $12 for adults, $10 for seniors and half-off for members. Call 394-6923 to reserve seats.
