Spearfish Fish Hatchery

The Spearfish Fish Hatchery is across the street from the city campground. They have grown fish here for stocking lakes and streams since the 1880’s. They have a fish train car that was used to distribute the fish. It was a baggage car that they retrofitted to carry the fish and the crew. It added to a passenger train. The fish “caretakers” slept in bunks above the fish tanks.
