carouselCity Carousel

109 9th Ave South
Faulkton, SD 57438

July 22, 1981, Bob Ketterling of Faulkton purchased a carousel at an auction in Edgemont, S.D.  The Carousel is No. 8, manufactured in 1925 by the C.W. Parker Co. of Leavenworth, Kansas. It has 19 of the 20 original aluminum horses and the 2 chariot seats, one red and one blue.

In August of 1981, he began giving free rides to all and planned "The Happy Times Park" around the carousel. He died in 1988 and Faulkton was named the "Carousel City" in his memory. In 1990 the City purchased the Carousel from his widow.

900 8th Ave. South
Faulkton, SD 57438

The John and Alice Pickler home on the south edge of Faulkton is a prairie Victorian home featuring 20 rooms in three stories. Construction began in 1882 when Major Pickler, a Civil War veteran, built his claim shanty on his pre-emption near the Nixon River of Faulk County, Dakota Territory.  There was no architect for the construction of this prairie mansion, which was built in stages and completed by 1894.

Many events took place in this commonly called "Pink Castle". From weddings, proms, funerals to being a polling place for the township for many years. The home was used to host many visiting dignitaries including Susan B. Anthony, who stayed with them in 1890, and Teddy Roosevelt.

  • Come take a tour of this wonderful piece of history. 
  • Open for tours daily 1-4 p.m. Memorial day to Labor Day or call 605-598-4285.
