DEADWOOD, S.D. (AP) - The city of Deadwood is buying the 10-foot tall Wild Bill Bar sign for $13,500 to put it in its rightful spot.

The Black Hills Pioneer reports (http://bit.ly/202WcLx ) that It’s a mystery how the historic sign was moved from its proper location at 620 Main Street to 610 Main Street.

This past week, the city commission approved the Deadwood Historic Preservation Commission to purchase and return the sign to its proper spot.

The sign will be purchased from Matt Steiner, and the city will enter into a lease-to-own agreement with a lease purchase easement. The city made the deal after getting a formal appraisal.

It will cost $450 to remove the sign, which is at least 25 years old, and about $500 to install the sign at a new location.
