Deadwood, SD − The City of Deadwood’s Historic Preservation Commission believes great books are the lifeblood of any historic community. Therefore, it is beneficial to have a program to assist in the publication of well-written, well-researched books on Deadwood and Black Hills history.
The objective of the program is to financially assist publication projects with funding for upfront cost to publish a book(s) on the history of Deadwood and/or the Black Hills. To be eligible for the Historic Publication Fund the book(s) must relate to the history of Deadwood and/or the Black Hills. Preference will be given to authors from Deadwood first, followed by authors from Western South Dakota, South Dakota, and then the surrounding states.
The Historic Publication Fund is a partnership between Deadwood Historic Preservation Commission and the applicant. This partnership offers an interest free advance on funds to assist with upfront printing costs. The maximum amount available per applicant is $5,000.
