Kevin Costner selling land in South Dakota
DEADWOOD, S.D. — Hollywood actor Kevin Costner is asking $14 million for 1,000 acres of land he owns near the Old West gambling town of Deadwood in western South Dakota’s Black Hills.
The property includes the site of the ill-fated Dunbar casino resort, a $100 million project that would have included a golf course and a steam-powered passenger train. It never materialized.
The listing does not include Costner’s Midnight Star casino and restaurant, the tallest building on Deadwood’s Main Street, or the $6 million visitor attraction he owns on the town’s north edge called Tatanka: Story of the Bison.
Costner filmed much of his Academy Award-wining movie “Dances with Wolves” in South Dakota.
There are separate listings for three pieces of property, with asking prices of $7.4 million, $1.2 million and $5.4 million.
