Dacotah Prairie Museum
The Dacotah Prairie Museum features an annual rotation of exhibits pertaining to local history, culture, wild life, and geography. Daily presentations, seasonal camps, and a revolving cycle of exhibits change regularly, but are updated on the Museum's website and social media.
Backstory and Context
The artifacts sat in storage until the 1960s, when a group of University women rediscovered the idea, and the effort that had previously been applied to it. A temporary location was provided, and first exhibit featured items from Brown County history and the local Native American tribe.
Throughout the last four decades the museum has moved twice more, eventually to the location where it sits today. The museum serves the Aberdeen community, preserving the area's rich past and illustrating the local history.
