Much of the Museum and Archives tells the history of the Mennonite and Hutterite denominations. So who are the Mennonites and Hutterites, and what do they believe?
More info coming soon.
The story of the Germans from Russia who settled in Southeastern South Dakota and the building up of the community of Freeman.
We also tell the stories of the Native peoples who lived on the plains long before European settlers arrived. This display ranges from arrow heads and early tools to clothing and artwork. We are pleased to tell the story of Standing Bear and Steven R Riggs.

Heritage Hall Museum & Archives has over 20,000 items on display.
The Heritage Hall Museum is dedicated to the preservation of rare artifacts used by our ancestors on the way to our standard of living today. It is our desire to leave a wealth of information for our children's children to understand and learn about and from their ancestors.
Heritage Hall Museum welcomes you as an individual or a larger group. School and tour groups are highly encouraged to visit as our staff offers you a one-of-a-kind guide through the museum.
