W.h. Over Museum

The Lakota Family Camp displays many of the artifacts made in the early 20th century in the Lower Brule Reservation and given to the museum by the family of Father David Clark, an Episcopalian minister to the Sioux. In addition, see the 8 foot by 10 foot shanty built in 1882 by a Norwegian ship builder to house his 9 person family. Also stop by the restored 1912 Moline Dreadnought ’35’ in the “Time to Remember” in Heritage Hall, a hall dedicated to early pioneer life.

We hope you enjoy our work.
