2011. Travel back in time to the era of Theodore Roosevelt and Seth Bullock while viewing a virtual tour of the Mount Roosevelt Friendship Tower. The famous Deadwood Sheriff, Seth Bullock, built the Tower in 1919 as a dedication to President Theodore Roosevelt, his close friend of many years. Bullock wanted to create a memorial of his friend's life and a place where people could view wide open spaces that both Bullock and Roosevelt had become so fond of during their lives. In 1919, the Society of Black Hills Pioneers provided financial support to build the Tower and in 1966, the Society donated the Tower to the United States Forest Service. In 2005, the Tower was added to the National Register of Historic Places. This year marks the 92nd anniversary of Friendship Tower.
