The Historical Society, a volunteer organization in Elk Point, SD, population 1,963, received financing from Union County Electric Cooperative using the USDA REDL&G program, to purchase a 6.7 acre site with a house, two barns and an historic brick kiln for use as a museum, interpretive center and visitor’s center. The property is in excellent condition and is an extraordinary combination for historical preservation and education. The site fits the mission of UCHS to preserve Union County historic items/artifacts and educating the public through its museum.
