Bismuth is a ghost town in the Black Hills of Custer County, South Dakota, United States.


Bismuth existed around 1901 as a small community of half a dozen homes. It once included a store and a baseball team, but now only an old house remains of the town. The site is now part of a campground and a manmade lake.


Bismuth is located in the Black Hills on the northern border of Custer County, South Dakota, United States. It was built just north of Iron Creek and is about 1.5 miles northwest of the ghost town Spokane, South Dakota, and 5 miles southeast of Mount Rushmore.
