History of Prairie House Manor

I wonder what it was like to walk the streets of De Smet in 1880 when Colonel Thomas H. Ruth served as mayor.

Here in the Little Town on the Prairie, he was known as Banker Ruth, an early businessman. He purchased our property in 1884 and completed his house in 1894 before the birth of his son, Edwin.

Our home was restored in 1989 and opened for business on June 29, 1990. At that time, it was dedicated to the Lord as a Christian business, and the Lord has richly blessed us with wonderful couples and families.
