Dacotah Prairie Museum at 50
Making and Preserving History at the Dacotah Prairie Museum
From Museum Director Patricia Kendall, “The Dacotah Prairie Museum celebrates 50 years as Brown County’s premier history museum this October. Over the decades, the museum has been a storehouse for the county’s collective memory and has provided exceptional archival, research, exhibit, and educational services. The museum is housed in the historic Northwestern Bank building built in 1889, a cornerstone of Aberdeen’s vibrant downtown district. The museum was established in 1969 and found its permanent home at 21 South Main Street in October 1970.” Stay tuned for updates to help the museum celebrate their anniversary and join them as they make their way toward a century of providing Brown County a historic home. // – Karlie Spiry
