– Situated on +/- 9.1 Acres

As I have retired and have discontinued my former business operated on this location known as Brookings Electric and no longer am utilizing this property in connection with my business, I will offer the following real property at auction located at 21092 478th Ave. on the SW Corner of Bushnell SD; or from Brookings SD Exit #132 on I-29 – 5 ½ miles east on US Hwy. #14 to Bushnell Corner (478th Ave.), then 1 mile North to Jct. of 478th Ave and 211th St.


It has often been said “Drive a Little – Save A Lot!” This could be especially true for this property, as if it could be found, a multifaceted property such as this one would be pricey in the Brookings, SD marketplace – As this property features a commercial building with office space and work/storage area, has a horse barn that could be utilized for horses or additional storage and affords the opportunity to purchase up to a total of +/-9.12 acres in Bushnell, SD, much of which presently is being utilized as grazing and hayland, but could be developed for other utilizations in the future!
