Census Data for Lake City ...

Although we found mention of Lake City during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Over time, we expect to discover additional information that will be added to our Gazetteer..

One piece of information that we would especially like to find is the location (ie- GPS coordinates) of Lake City. If you can help us locate Lake City, please Contact Us.

Footnotes ...

<1>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer. For example, we might find a sentence like "He went south past Lake City and then turned east". While Lake City could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Lake City as a placeholder with the hope that we'll be able to add more information in the future.

Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places (or areas) where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. For example, you might hear somebody say that they are going over to Mile's to see Pete ... Mile's is just a gas station and a couple of homes at the crossroads. While it might not be on the map, everybody in the area knows it by that name.

Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, several families clustered in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc. The community might still exist, is now gone or only existed for just a short period of time.

Also keep in mind that Lake City could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere or was placed in the wrong county. Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community - we're working to straighten it all out.

Just in case there has been confusion between counties, we found that there are two South Dakota communities named Lake City: This one is located in Minnehaha County and the other is located in Marshall County. For more information, see our Tidbits & Trivia Page for Lake City.
<2>Every 10 years (eg- 1990, 2000, 2010), the US Census Bureau conducts a Constitutionally-mandated count (or enumeration) of people living within the United States. This count is called a Decennial Census. The last Decennial Census was the 2010 Census, with the next one planned for 2020.
<3>If you're interested in how the shape of South Dakota's counties, including Minnehaha, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
