Swett, South Dakota is located among the beautiful prairie scenery that is prevalent to this area. While never a large town, Swett carries the history of the struggle of resettlement of the Native Americans.

In 1932 the post office was started in the local grocery store and named after a local farmer named Swett that owned the store. Swett, South Dakota continued as a Native American village until 1945 when the government decided the population was too small and closed it. Even though the post office has closed, Swett is still shown on the South Dakota maps along highway 18.

The Swett Tavern is still operating and invites everyone to stop and have a bite to eat and a cool drink before continuing your trip down Highway 18.
