Drawn to the Land: Homesteading Dakota

A Traveling exhibit from the South Dakota State Historical Society

April 13th-May 22nd

From 1860 to 1920, thousands of homesteaders poured into Dakota from across the country and overseas. Many stayed, making a home for themselves and their descendents. Stop in the library and see historic photographs, artifact images and text to tell the story of the homesteading experience in Dakota.

This exhibit is free to the public and being brought to you by the Friends of the North Sioux City Community Library.
