Ninety-three years ago Berwyn was just a few sod houses and a post office on the prairie.
Today we have oiled streets and about three dozen family homes, a privately operated grain elevator, and ten home-based businesses, which take care of all of our needs. Berwyn is set beside the Muddy Creek which meanders through Custer County and past our little village. We have two beautiful parks with shelters, a basketball and tennis court, a K-8 school, and a volunteer Fire Department. Businesses: Nichols Plumbing, Nelson’s Archery, Heritage House Bed & Breakfast, Vault Antiques, Sandhills Seamless Gutter, Doggett’s Construction, which includes shingling & tree removal, Johnson’s Electric (includes pivot installation & repair), Wood ‘n’ Wonders (wood crafts), Linda’s Sweet Creations (baked goods & flower arrangements), Critchfield’s Fabrications (metal work & car restoration).
In addition to the annual Junk Jaunt (last full weekend in Sept.), Berwyn celebrates a Piston, picnic, and Poker Car show on the second Sunday of September, and a Firemen’s Pancake Feed every October.
