ju Lilre deginning . . Prologue Before the turn of the century, when the west was still the "wide open spaces" of rolling hills and great expanses of prairie, the town of Midland was founded. In l89O, Charlie Russell came from Buffalo, New York, to Pierre, during the capital boom in l888 and '89, In the spring of l89O, soon after the territory was closed as a reservation and thrown open to white settlement, Mr. Russell organized a company, plotted a site, and called the town Midland, because of its position midway between Pierre and the Black Hills. He opened a store and later a hotel which was operated by Mrs. Emily Hall, mother of Mrs. Jennie Russell. Mrs. Hall had orig- inally settled at the Nowlin site. Wagon loads of goods were freighted from Pierre to stock the Russell store . Customers were ranchers, cowboys, and many Sioux who traveled the Spotted Tail Trail from the Rosebud reservation. ln those days, Mr. Russell said his doors were never locked and nothing was stolen until the railroad brought hobos, civilization, and the need for law and order. Mr. Russell and Jennie Hall were married in i895 and their daughter Grace was the first white child born in Midland . She was also one of the first two graduates of Midland High . Life in this "promised land" seemed ideal to the few early settlers. A dream of prosperity, plenty of game, wood, water, and sunshine was the bright hope of the future . ln the midst of this peaceful existence, during the month of Q November, came rumors ofa Sioux uprising . Scouts warned the pioneers that the path of the war party would perhaps head through Nowlin. Settlers, including Mrs. Hall and her three daughters, one of whom was Mrs. Jennie Russell, spent a cold and fearful night on the banks of Bad River. About fifty families gathered at Midland and began the long sixty-mile wagon train trek to Ft. Pierre and safety. Spending the nights sleeping on hay and under cattle sheds, and the days traveling their weary way, the party arrived, after three days, at Ft. Pierre where they remained until the spring of '89, when Mrs. Hall returned to Midland and opened the hotel which she continued to operate for seven years. One of the disastrous. events of the early day was the blizzard of May 5, 1905 which wrote a tragic story across the pages of the westem ranch life. Beginning as a rain which lasted two days, the storm came suddenly, sending temperatures below zero. Bewildered livestock drifted into creeks and draws and were covered with snow or died of exposure and cold. ln the same year, another blow struck the pioneers . On July 4, Bad River flooded its banks causing ranchers along the river to flee their homes in the dark hours of the night or early moming . Lives were lost and much property destroyed. i
