Welcome

Welcome to the South Dakota State Historical Society.  Created by the Legislature in 1901, the Society has been the keeper of state’s history ever since.  Today we operate five program areas—archaeology, archives, historic preservation, museum, and research and publishing.  Explore South Dakota’s history—list your home on the National Register of Historic Places, read our publications, study in our research room, and visit our museum.  Find out more about the South Dakota State Historical Society here.
