Welcome to the Brandon Historical Society homepage!  The Society was founded in 1999 by citizens concerned with perserving and representing the rich history of the Brandon, SD, area. Our musuem was located in the historic 1916 school building until it was razed in the summer of 2016. Recently, however, the Society was leased the former Chamber of Commerce building (used as the community library prior to that) located at 109 N. Pipestone St.  Additionally, we are currently in the process of preserving and renovating the Nels Graff cabin, which was built in 1870.  This cabin will be moved from its current location to the appropriately-named Pioneer Park here in Brandon, SD.  If you would like to help with this project (all time, talents and resources are MUCH appreciated), please contact Society president Jeremy Risty using the contact information above.  If you would like to see historic and other relevant photos, check out our image gallery.  Our bi-annual newsletter can also be found above.  If you are interested in becoming a member, please print and mail the membership form found on the link above.  In addition, if you would like to purchase a Brandon Area History book for $20, please contact the Society.  Thanks!
