A Vision Restored...
Nestled on the edge of Lake Elsie in Gary, South Dakota, Buffalo Ridge Resort and Business Center is a beautifully restored, historic property surrounded by developing oak trees, small town charm, and a rich history dating back to 1872. Buffalo Ridge was one home to South Dakota's first School for the Blind and Visually Impaired. Today, while fully renovated, the property still remains much of its historical appeal, including a unique system of underground tunnels, originally used to allow the blind students to travel from one building to another in inclement weather.
