History of Running Water, South Dakota
Running Water was a major steamboat stop on the Middle Missouri until the 1880's. The Missouri River Transportation Company, headquartered here, had a fleet of steamboats running between Sioux City and upriver points. Burgeoning railway lines sent the steamboat trade into decline. Trains carried a considerable amount of freight from Running Water to Chicago and other eastern cities. In time, however, that trade also declined, because the railroad did not cross the river.
