According to the Who's Hobby House website, the store moved to their current downtown Rapid City location in 1993. Who's Hobby House originally was founded in 1950 by William H. Ostertag, whose initials are where the name "Who's" originated from. The sign was made in 1951. More information can be found at the Who's Hobby House website. Many thanks to Lee Salawitch for photo update. 04-09
