Wind damage at Wards Store


High winds Nov. 8 tore the red corrugated metal facade and sign from the front of Ward’s Store & Bakery in De Smet, giving people a view of the original architecture. The building, which has been a hardware store, opera house, a JC Penney Store and Ward’s V Store, before it was Ward’s Store & Bakery, has been in Patti Ward Slater’s family since 1957.
