The store owner next door said Johnny One passed away this Spring. The panning store appears closed. There's a wonderful rock shop next door.

Johnny One Feather.

Statue of johnny One Feather

Johnny One Feather runs this tourist trap and has gold panning, a giant statue of himself, and lots of entertaining stories of the days when he was a gun fighter and stunt man. Visiting here was the highlight of my children's trip!

Johnny One Feather

Had a great time on our visit to Johnny One Feather. He was full of interesting stories, from his movie work to his home, which he said is within sight of Mt. Rushmore. The prospector statue is him, the mural at his panning station is him and his land. Even the dirt we were using for panning was brought in from his property. We were glad we stopped.

We also stopped at the muffler man/pick-ax man next door.
