Thunder Hawk, South Dakota runs along side of the North Dakota border on the Standing Rock Reservation. Thunder Hawk was named after a famous Sioux Indian leader, Chief Thunder Hawk.
The building of the railroad and onset of the homesteaders in the early 1900s was the beginning of the small prairie town of Thunder Hawk, SD. The depression and droughts of the 1930s started the exodus of the homesteaders followed by the closing of the rail lines.
Unfortunately there isnt much left of the actual Townsite of Thunder Hawk today. Thunder Hawk, SD seems to be made up of large farms with an occasional Prairie Dog town along side of the highway.
