Welcome to Howard, South Dakota, a place rich in farm country heritage. Close to nature, Howard is a town offering a healthy change of pace from urban life.

where anyone can have a real voice in community planning,
and where a five-foot-seven kid has a shot at both
starting on the high school football team and playing
trumpet in the band.

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.
