Important: Please Read
The Minnehaha County Historical Society makes no claims or endorsements of businesses offering any products or services listed in this directory.
The directory is by no means comprehensive; businesses not listed here may be just as qualified as those included.
As with any business transaction, remember, it's "buyer beware." Be sure to ask for - and verify - references.
Protect your investment: ask for verification that businesses have the appropriate licenses and insurance coverage.
Be skeptical of recommendations that insist upon replacing historic elements without considering restoration. While sometimes this is necessary, restoration of historic features is always preferred, and often can cost less than replacement.
Some cities in the county designate certain historic buildings and regulate alterations to them. Before altering a designated structure, be sure to obtain proper permits and sign-offs from responsible city or county agencies. If you have questions about how to do this, please contact the Historical Society at (605) 338-8000 or email@example.com.
If you have any problems with someone listed in this directory, please report them to us at or (605) 338-8000. Verifiable complaints may lead to the removal of a business from the directory.
