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 individuals and families, as well as school and tour groups. Large groups are encouraged to call ahead to arrange for guides as needed.
We look forward to having you visit our 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!
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!
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.
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.
