Abstract

A study of land ownership patterns in northwest South Dakota has revealed that, in 1936, eight counties owned approximately 787 thousand acres of tax-deed and school fund foreclosure land. This is only one indication of the vast amount of public ownership in this area. On the same date there were nearly 984 thousand acres of common school endowment lands, approximately 387 thousand acres of land belonging to public corporations, and some 328 thousand acres of Federal land. Total public ownership amounted to slightly less than two and a half million acres which is approximately 21 per cent of the estimated total area of the region.
