I like the friendly people in Eagle Butte and the beautiful area where it is located. There are rolling hills and lots of prairie with cows and horses in abundance.
I would like to see there be more businesses in Eagle Butte, as well as more job opportunities.

Eagle Butte is a small community where it seems like everyone knows and is related to everyone else. It does not offer much in the way of shopping or food venues, but it does boast a movie theater. It is a town in the middle of ranching country, so it is a good place to be if you like the rural life.
what I have like current and the past of eagle butte SD is that they are improving for the youth .
they have recently built a movie and they are working on rebuilding our local swimming pool. every holiday they have stuff going on like games, and family parties that are put on from local business, and what I like about the past is that they have a teen center for the youth. they are able to stay active and out of trouble they even have midnight games on weekend from volleyball, flag football and lots of other games..
