The First Congregational Church of Keystone

Keystone South Dakota Logo

"A century-old tradition of warmly welcoming visitors to the Black Hills."

Keystone Congregational United Church of Christ, founded in 1895, and serving the community from the same historic building since 1896, invites all to take part in our events.

The service is traditional but informal. The Lord’s Supper is observed on the first Sunday of each month. All events are held at the Church building unless noted otherwise. Tours of the building can be arranged. Come visit us anytime!

The Church is located one block north of Highway 40 (up the hill from the Big Thunder Gold Mine) in Old Keystone at 402 Blair Street. It’s one of the featured sites on the “Keystone Walking Tour.”

A Personal Touch

We aim to make your stay comfortable even when you leave your room, which is why we’ve taken care to add amenities you won’t find elsewhere. Enjoy common areas like our front patio, or our open front lobby with tables you can play cards at, or mingle with other guests. Who knows, you might just find new friends to explore the Black Hills with! 

All of our rooms open onto a covered balcony with a great view of downtown Keystone, so you’re never too far from your car or from starting your next adventure. Our hotel’s location is perfectly situated to the top Keystone attractions; you won’t even need your car once you park it in our private lot. We invite you to join us in supporting our local diners and restaurants for breakfast — they offer incredible food that will make you feel right at home. We’re right next to Grizzly Creek and bordered by ponderosa pines, so while we’re close to it all, you’ll still feel connected to the beautiful Black Hills.

Our goal is to make your time here at the Boardwalk Inn and Suites just as memorable as the attractions you’ve come to see. For starters, our owners have been in Keystone for over 50 years now. They know everything about our small town, but more importantly they know the history and the names that shaped it. From Gutzon Borglum, the man who carved the mountain, to the four presidents he carved, you’ll be treated to a wealth of information. Their passion for Keystone and customer service is apparent in every person you’ll meet during your stay. 

A Few Words From Our Customers

We go above and beyond to make sure your stay is delightful from start to finish, but you don’t just have to take our word for it. Here’s what previous (and repeat!) customers have to say about us: 

“Perfect stop after a long ride. The town was fun and quaint. At the foot of Rushmore. The rooms are unusually large and very clean. Easy walk to boardwalk shops and restaurants.”

“If you are looking for a central location to visit all of the attractions in the area then this is the place to stay. There are many shops and restaurants within a very short walk as well as several attractions like the Borglum Museum and the 1880 Train. The rooms are clean and the staff very friendly.”
