Buffalo Ridge Resort

1312 Coteau St Gary, SD
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 developed oak trees, small town charm, and a rich history dating back to 1872. Buffalo Ridge was once home to South Dakota’s first School for the Blind and Visually Impaired. Today, while fully renovated, the property still retains 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. The Herrick Hotel and Woodbury Hall, which were once the campus dormitories, have now been completely renovated and restored. At Buffalo Ridge Resort & Business Center, you’ll discover a generated blend of past and present with contemporary western allure. Uniquely charming, Buffalo Ridge Resort and Business Center is perfect for business or leisure. Whether your time is spent on the historical campus or at Talking Waters, Buffalo Ridge is distinctively adapting to your wishes and needs.
