Try Hill City and Deadwood. They're not actual Ghost Towns, but have much history to offer. Hill City especially, has a number of abandoned buildings. Check the SD GT page at gt.com, I'm sure you can find a few sites in the Lawrence/Pennington county and vacinity. If those ideas don't work out, perhaps you might try buying a good ghost towns book for the Black Hills region. Check the posts under 'Latitude and Longtitude' thread where I have placed a useful list of links, where the link at the very top of the list will take you to a fantastic online book store.
Oh, and remember to check Ghost Town lists for the counties in Wyoming and Nebraska which are next door to the Black Hills.
