History

The “Falls” at Sioux Falls date back to the last ice age, some 14,000 years ago. It has been inhabited since by indigenous groups like the Cheyenne, Dakota, Arikara, Osage, Kansa, Quapaw, Omaha, Ponca, Missouri, Otoe, Ioway and Ho-Chunk, at one time or another. Most of the Native American population of the region today, though, belong to the Lakota or Dakota peoples. The French explored the region in the 18th century, and the Americans in the early 19th. White settlers came to the falls in 1856, and built ‘fort sod’ to defend against the local tribes who were less than receptive to colonization. The Dakota War saw the town evacuated in 1862, and Fort Dakota was established in the ruins of the old town in 1865. The town’s population exploded in the 1880s when the railroad reached the area, and it began to expand industrially in the early 20th century. Of course, that was all long before anyone was living in mobile homes in Sioux Falls, SD. The 1980s saw a deliberate push to transform its economy into the realm of financial services, and the city’s population has more than doubled in the last 40 years. This was when buying a mobile home in Sioux Falls became fashionable.

The city’s Metro Area includes Lincoln, McCook, Minnehaha and Turner County, as well as parts of 26 other counties.

Few of the homes are more than 50 years old. The problem with Pepper Ridge is that no one wants to leave.
