The Lower Sioux Agency was a U.S. government Indian agency established in 1853 to be the administrative center of the newly created Dakota reservation. A history center exhibit explores the Dakota story before, during and after the war. Self-guided trails explore the grounds, interpret agency activities, and take visitors to the restored 1861 stone warehouse and the redwood ferry crossing. During your visit, explore Dakota life before, during, and after the reservation era. See the difference between traditional Dakota farming practices and those taught by Agency employees in the site’s period gardens and farm plots. Learn about the Agency’s purpose and daily operation and look for underlying causes of the U.S.-Dakota War of 1862 in the history center exhibit.
