Bonilla, South Dakota was platted and named by a division superintendent of the Milwaukee railroad for the president of Honduras, Gen. Manuel Bonilla.
Bonilla lays 20 miles outside of Huron, a larger and more industrialized city that pulls the younger people away. Thus the population of Bonilla has drastically declined since highways started being paved in the 1930’s.
The Bonilla area has long been known for the large populations of pheasants and grows in size every fall as the influx of hunters descends upon the area.
