RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - The nearly 90-year old Hotel Alex Johnson in Rapid City, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is wrapping up its first major renovation in 4 decades.

     Workers have been busy this week putting the final touches on the project ahead of an open house Friday that will display its renovated rooms, including the Presidential Suite

    The first major renovation of the Alex Johnson since the 1970s has seen all the guest rooms in the 11-story hotel stripped to the walls and totally rebuilt.
     Initial construction on the Alex Johnson started in October 1927 and the first guests checked in the following year.
