Photos from Jack Kirchgesler

Jack Kirchgesler is a name familiar to motorcycle enthusiasts. Jack owned the first Harley-Davidson dealership in the Black Hills area. It's been said that he and J.C. (Clarence) "Pappy" Hoel had friendly rivalry.

Here are some photos from Jack Kirchgesler's CCC days. He was with company 1791 at Camp Custer. Kirchgesler may have spent time at Orman Dam as some of the photos suggest.
