Known as the Queen City, Spearfish
is surrounded by three prominent mountain peaks – Lookout Mountain,
Spearfish Mountain, and Crow Peak which form a “crown” circling the
City. The name Spearfish comes from Native Americans and fur traders
in the early 1800’s who considered the clear and tumbling stream
through the canyon a good place to spear fish.
Spearfish continues to grow and
prosper. The community is a focal point for tourism, is rich in
history, arts and entertainment and is a retail trade center.
Spearfish with it's resort like natural setting, its business,
educational, and cultural opportunities, is a wonderful place to
spend some time.
