The listing includes the site of what would have been the Dunbar casino resort, a $100 million project with a golf course and a steam-powered passenger train. But the project was never completed. The property for sale does not include Costner’s Midnight Star casino and restaurant, the tallest building on Main Street in Deadwood, South Dakota or Tatanka: Story of the Bison, the $6 million attraction on the town’s northern edge.
Costner filmed most of his Academy-Award winning movie “Dances With Wolves” in South Dakota.
“He has a strong sense of loyalty to the area and it was a hard decision for him,” real estate agent Mike Percevich told the Black Hills Pioneer, adding that it took months for Costner to make the decision.
There are three separate listings with price tags of $7.4 million, $1.2 million and $5.4 million. The most expensive includes the site of the not complete Dunbar.
“The ground has been prepared for a resort, which was to be called the Dunbar,” Percevich said. “Everything’s done up there. They were just getting ready to start setting the foundation and it stopped.”
