Lower Sioux Agency Historic Site


    Originally an administrative center for the Dakota Reservation that was opened in 1853, by the U.S. Government, it became a historical site after the Dakota War of 1862. This was the site of the first attack in the War of 1862. Visitors go through the museum and the accompanying trails by themselves, as they explore the history of the Dakota People in the area, before, during and after the War. The trails take visitors to a restored 1861 stone warehouse as well as the Redwood Ferry crossing. 
The site is currently managed by the Lower Sioux Indian Community.
