Long Description:
Harrold is located in Hughes County, South Dakota, along US Highway 14, and has a population of 200 as of July 2008. This reflects a decrease in population of about 4% from the 2000 census.

Settlers of this town were made up of German, Irish, Norwegian, English, and Scottish ancestries.

The town was incorporated on May 12, 1886, and was named for Harrold McCullough, a railroad official.

As with any small town, when the school closes, it becomes extremely difficult to keep up the population. The same was true for Harrold. Its population is in decline and it won’t be too many years before there will be very few people in the town.

Visit Instructions:
To post a log to an existing U.S. Post Office waymark, you will need to post a picture of the front of the building, with the name of the post office in the background if that is possible. Including your gps device in the picture is not neccesary, but wouldn't be cause for disapproval, as long as all other details of your log are acceptable. If your Post Office has any unusual or unique features that you feel others would enjoy viewing, additional pictures are always welcome.
