“Flame or no Flame”
Reviewed 3 March 2012

I grew up in Pierre so I've seen the fountain burning many a time but usually lately it has not been lit. I know the winds are fierce here in SD so I assume that is why it isn't lit. However if it isn't lit there really is no charm. It smells terrible which is why it can burn.

“tourist attraction.”
Reviewed 5 February 2012

The fountain comes from an artesian well which supplies warm water and natural gas. this has been going on since the early 1900's. The gas has been slowly diminishing in quantity for some time.
