The Adams Museum is home to some of the Black Hills’ greatest treasures, including Potato Creek Johnny’s gold nugget, American illustrator N.C. Wyeth’s pencil sketch drawing of Western legend Wild Bill Hickok, the mysterious Thoen Stone record of the Ezra Kind party’s discovery of gold in the Hills in the 1830s, and a one-of-a-kind plesiosaur.
