The tallest structure in South Dakota almost isn’t. The 1,999-foot-high KDLT mast is so close to the triple border with Iowa and Minnesota that it almost seems as if South Dakota drew the line around the spire to claim something taller than the prairie grass.
KDLT's mast, at 1,999 feet high, makes it one of the tallest structures not just in South Dakota but in the world. A handful of other transmission towers are the same height or slightly taller; the only buildings that top it are the Burj Khalifa and the Tokyo Skytree.
