Nemo is an unincorporated community in Lawrence County, SD. The population was 546 at the 2010 census.  Early settlers came to the Nemo area in the late 1800’s. Many of them located mining claims or took their chances on squatter’s rights to get some land to call their own. Later, they would use the Homestead Act to legalize their claim to ownership.  The area was eventually timbered out by 1940, the sawmill operation at Nemo was shut down and Homestake employees moved away. The sawmill was torn down and some of the structures were either razed or moved.  In 1946, Nemo was purchased by the Frank Troxell family and developed into a guest ranch.  The Nemo Guest Ranch is a quiet, rustic, western resort nestled in the pine trees along a trout stream in the northern Black Hills of South Dakota.  Many of the cabins are original Nemo buildings and are rustic.  Originally Nemo’s one-room school house, now the 4-T cabin, is a newly remodeled, fully-winterized cabin, a favorite for Christmas vacationers, snowmobilers and hunters. It has three bedrooms downstairs, a loft, one large bathroom, living area with gas fireplace and kitchen.
