This is in Crooks County. From Lead, South Dakota, take US highway 85 southwest to (South Dakota) county road #107 on the right side of the highway. The distance from Lead to this road is probably about 30 miles. The entrance to county road #107 is not very far from the Buckhorn Saloon (great food!) but if you get to the Buckhorn, you have gone too far. The folks in the Buckhorn are aware of the Hain Spring and are a good resource on how to get there. Turn off the highway onto the unpaved road (good and passable in fair weather) and drive for about a mile and it crosses a cattle guard and the road changes to (Wyoming) county road #807. Continue driving and soon there is a "Y" in the road--the left goes to Lost Valley and the right goes to Moskee. Go RIGHT. Drive and look to the left soon for a brown sign that says "Hain Spring" with an arrow pointing left. Turn in and the track opens to a clearing on the left. You can park at the top of the slope. This is the Hain homestead property and downhill is the Hain Spring which has a livestock water tank to catch the water. None of the two-story log cabin built by Levi Hain himself exists. It burned down and nearly everything was lost except Maribee's organ and the family bible. Everything was bulldozed by someone, probably more than once, as it allows access to the spring for cattle. In 2007 there was still a depression in the hillside that was once supposed to be for cold storage, etc. Some evidence was discovered of past habitation...belt buckle, the sole of a shoe, parts of an old iron woodstove. The monument can be located by looking uphill from the spring and to the right. There is a small fenced area under a pine tree and the monument is inside the fencing. From Cheryl Carter
