58-VerendryeMuseumFtPierreAug2022

Fort Pierre has been called the most historic city in South Dakota, and for good reason. It is the oldest continuous white settlement in Dakota Territory, dating back more than 200 years to 1817. As a busy trading post for furs, steam -powered paddle boats traveling from St. Louis made the Missouri River the freeway of that era.

1. Verendrye Museum:

Neat little museum showing the local history with multiple artifacts from people from the area. Wonderful lady that runs the place who shared stories of the area with us.

The Verendrye Museum is named for Chevalier and Lewis Verendrye, two French brothers, who explored the upper reaches of the Missouri River. The Verendrye Museum is located in the old American legion hall, a 1930s vintage building that was placed on the National Historic Register in July 2017. The museum houses a collection of South Dakota and regional artifacts documenting the early history of the area. Thousands of authentic early day items make the Verendrye Museum one of the finest western memorabilia collections on the High Plains. Most of the permanent exhibits were donated by local, pioneer families interested in preserving an accurate record of life in central South Dakota.
