Description:     You might be surprised to find that this attraction isn't what you expect. Visitors have been coming to the D.C. Booth Fish Hatchery for more than 100 years just to enjoy the park-like setting. You also get a chance to feed the fish and see them swimming behind  huge underwater windows.
    The hatchery is one of the oldest operating hatcheries in the country dedicated to fish culture and resource management. It originally was constructed to stock trout populations in the Black Hills and operated as in that role until mid-1980s.
     Today is is operated by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service as an historic and cultural heritage center and museum. It is called a "
living fishery museum" that still rears trout for the Black Hills. It also is a museum of fishery records and artifacts for educational, research, and historic purposes.
