1872 Saloon & The Old Mill

Businesses in Yankton, SD

This cozy dive bar and event space is full of rich history and is listed on the National Historic Register.

Built in 1872, the original stone building was the first industrial facility of the Dakota Territory. It functioned as a flour mill, and also served as a fur trading post and rail stop. Today, the historic building serves as a saloon and event space full of original character. While you’re there, be sure to check out the sandstone wall where visitors would carve their initials. Located next door to River’s Edge – Restaurant, Bar, and Lounge. 

If you are looking for something with tons of history, a casual dive bar feel and something totally new to the Yankton entertainment scene, this is it. The Excelsior Mill is a lasting relic from a time when Yankton was alive with manufacturing in Lower Downtown Yankton near the Missouri River.
