Please note: Wessington, South Dakota, and Wessington SPRINGS, South Dakota, are two different towns. Often times the media or uneducated folks confuse the two. We forgive you, but letís clear up the confusion. Wessington, SD, is its own separate entity. We welcome you for a visit and this should help you remember to separate the two.
