South Dakota Development

Home / South Dakota Development

We are excited about our various property developments in South Dakota.  Located near Spearfish, South Dakota, with the surrounding cities of Lead, Deadwood, Sturgis, we have developed and continue to build upon the infrastructure for residential and commercial resort properties.  Easily accessible through the I-90 corridor and Hwy 85, Propp Realty is leading the way for this up-and-coming region in South Dakota.

Residents, investors and visitors alike are realizing the endless opportunities to live, work and play in the Spearfish region.  This year-round destination spot, surrounded by the natural beauty of the Black Hills, is currently being developed to support a technology center for South Dakota along the I-90 corridor.  With low property tax and no corporate income tax, the commercial development possibilities include a commerce infrastructure already in place to support retail centers, gas & fueling stations, convenience stores, restaurant pads, car and truck lodges, and more.  Local universities, which include South Dakota School of Mines and Black Hills State University, enrich this vibrant community.  The area is also has a state-of-the-art medical facility, the Rapid City Regional Hospital, to support the increase in population, with a satellite location coming to Exit 17 (Frawley Ranches).

Elkhorn Ridge at Frawley Ranches

Propp Realty offers residential properties at the Elkhorn Ridge at Frawley Ranches development.  The community features upscale homes, including the 2010 Parade of Homes winner.  We also offer golf course home lots, attached to the Elkhorn Ridge Golf Club, starting at $69,000.  Elkhorn Ridge at Frawley Ranches is just minutes from the local Black Hills attractions: downtown Spearfish, Historic Deadwood, Sturgis and the Black Hills National Forest.  Also within a short driving distance is Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse Memorial, Devils Tower and scenic Spearfish Canyon.

Daryll Propp is committed to maintain the historic reverence this community deserves. “It’s a wonderful development but protecting the historic value of the Frawley Ranches at Elkhorn Ridge is just as important to us,” says Mr. Propp.  “We’ve restored one-of-a-kind Courtyard Barns, The Anderson Ranch dairy farm with it unique cold-water spring running through the farm, an original 1880’s schoolhourse and the Wosley family dugout.”
