Long Description:
Located in northern Kingsbury County, South Dakota, Erwin has a population of 53 as of 2007, a small decrease from the 2000 census.

Ancestries include Norwegian, German, English, French, and Irish.

As with many small towns, Erwin has a declining population due, in part to the loss of the school in the 1970s.

Mainly an ag-based community, the largest company is the grain elevator which does a thriving business.

The Milwaukee Road railroad used to run through the town and many bushels of grain were shipped out of Erwin.

Potatoes were a major crop in the area also, but now small grain has taken over.

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.
