WELCOME to Heritage Hall Museum & Archives 


Heritage Hall Museum & Archives has over 20,000 items on display.


The Heritage Hall Museum and Archives strives to preserve, educate and foster appreciation for the diverse natural and cultural history of the greater Freeman area, settled largely by Germans from Russia in the 1870s.


Heritage Hall Museum welcomes individuals and families, as well as school and tour groups. Large groups are encouraged to call ahead to arrange for guides as needed.

Southeast South Dakota

Freeman, South Dakota

Freeman Schools

We look forward to having you visit our Freeman South Dakota museum! If you are looking for local accommodations, places to eat, or other things to do while you’re in the area, please check out Experience Freeman. Their “Community Lore” page also has some great information about what makes our community unique!




Prairie Arboretum

Situated in the middle of the largest population center in South Dakota, Freeman is just 30 minutes north of Yankton and roughly 45-minutes from both Mitchell and Sioux Falls. You can find more information about this part of our state at Southeast South Dakota.

We are also next door to the campus of Freeman Academy, a private Christian school for grades 1-12 that was founded in 1900 as “South Dakota Mennonite College.” Each spring, Freeman Academy hosts the annual German “tasting festival” called Schmeckfest. Just a few blocks away, you’ll find Freeman Public School, established in 1888.

South Dakota Museum

Our museum is located right beside the Freeman Prairie Arboretum, so if you have some extra time, there are trails and beautiful spaces to relax in and enjoy!
