Presenter Ellen Bishop tells the story of the early settlement of Rapid City. Nineteen people stayed in the area in August of 1876 when all other residents left on a stage coach for Pierre after repeated Native American attacks. The community of Rapid City was founded on February 23, 1876, so this departure of people took place just six months after the town’s founding.

Why make Turtle Soup reservations?
* It helps our staff determing the amount of soup to order from Angel's Catering so that all paid reservations are guaranteed a bowl.
* We can always guarantee you can see a Turtle Soup Lecture...even if you walk-up at Noon. What makes us nervous is running out of soup!
