Take a step back in time as you enter the Mead Cultural Education Center.
The Mead Cultural Education Center, also known as the Mead Building, was completed as the Woman’s Receiving Hospital on the grounds of the South Dakota Hospital for the Insane in 1909. It currently houses the Lewis & Clark Exhibit: Journeying Forward, the Children’s Transportation Museum, and the Mead Event Rental Halls. After being used for storage and left empty for many years, the Yankton County Historical Society secured the purchase of the Mead Building to become the new home of the Dakota Territorial Museum and the Mead Event Halls. The restoration of the building is a work in progress. As each space is finished, a new exhibit will be opened representing a stage in the history of Yankton County and the City of Yankton.
