The Slime Plant, a historic building in Deadwood, SD, is being restored, remodeled, and renovated into the Deadwood Mountain Grand Event Center and Casino. The $43 million project will ultimately feature a 100-room hotel, a creekside restaurant, an indoor-outdoor bar with a view of the downtown historic district, a multi-level parking structure, and a 2500-seat entertainment complex. The developers hope to open in July 2011.

This video shows the work that has been completed as of November 2008, including demolishing the previous interior offices, digging out the mountainside in the back to make room for the hotel, digging out the interior floor down one story to accommodate the casino, and removing the outside siding to prepare for a new exterior.

Investors in the project include Ken Alphin, better known as Big Kenny of country supergroup Big & Rich.

Ground was broken for The Deadwood Mountain Grand Event Center & Casino, formerly known as the Slime Plant, on May 10, 2010 in Deadwood, SD. Big & Rich star Big Kenny Alphin, a partner in the project, was on hand to take part in the ceremony.

Big & Rich play the inaugural concert at the Deadwood Mountain Grand Event Center & Casino on July 8, 2011. Here are some highlights of the parade that was held to celebrate the event, as well as an interview with John Rich, Big Kenny Alphin, South Dakota governor Dennis Daugaard, and performer Cowboy Troy.

Looks like a very cool place! Nice to see that someone decided to "save" something old, rather than destroy it!
