The stone is carved in relief with the state seal of South Dakota depicting a farm scene with a man plowing a field with a horse-drawn plow. In the background there is a river winding its way into the distance, with a house on one shore, horses grazing on the opposite shore, and a boat traveling down the middle of the river. In a band surrounding the scene there is an inscription carved in low relief.
