Newton Hills Lodge

The Newton Hills Lodge was built in 1915. For 90 years, it served as the historic caretaker's home in Canton, SD, and played an important role in serving the healthcare needs of a variety of patients. In the early years, it served as the superintendent's home for the controversial Indian asylum. In later years, it housed the caretakers for the Canton-Inwood hospital. Until 2005, its purpose was healthcare related.


Lodge is reservable up to one year in advance.
