Utica In 1937, Harry Arrundale started the Lumbago Inn. Why the name Lumbago Inn? Arrundale had suffered much from lumbago, and right before the Inn had started, during an altercation with a customer who he had asked to leave, the irate customer delivered a punch to the right side of Arrundale’s jaw, knocking him to the ground. To Arrundale’s surprise, as he got up he noticed that his lumbago was gone and he was not bothered Utica Utica is a town in Yankton County, South Dakota, United States. Area: .26 sq. mi. Elevation: 1,368’ Population: 65 (2013) Zip code: 57067 Area code: 605 Some say Utica is a name derived from the Sioux language meaning “dweller”, while others believe the name is a transfer from Utica, New York. To chronicle the history of the town of Utica, there aren’t very many previously written facts concerning the town’s beginning. That made for a heavy reliance on transfers of property as recorded in the Yankton County Register of Deeds office. It would appear the land on which the bustling town of Utica was to be built, would soon become a bustling trading hub of the area. There is no indication as to how the name Utica was chosen. In 1886, part of the land next to and what was to be the town was deeded to the Chicago, Milwaukee, & St. Paul Railroad. The Yankton County Centennial book indicates a small store was there but closed for lack of business, and that partners Darby & King started a store in 1892, which survived, and later built a lumber yard and small warehouse. This store was the catalyst for the future town. On land east of the railroad tracks there was also a general merchandise store that operated under several owners. In 1895, Rudolph Peterka started operating a saloon which burned down in 1907 and was rebuilt and operated until prohibition. The building would later become the publishing offices of the Utica Times, a garage, a post office, and was later torn down for Utica Lumber to expand. 20vYANKTON COUNTY GUIDE 2019 Mead Lumber •Commercial •Residential •Agricultural We can handle any projects big or small.
