Vermillion is a city with a rich, exciting history. Founded initially on the Missouri River, it was home to the Ihanktowan Dakota Oyate, “People of the End Village”, a group of indigenous people that cultivated the land with corn and other crops. Settlers eventually made their way to this beautiful riverside area and began establishing businesses and homes for their families. Fur traders and trappers alike travelled on the river, which led to the formation of the Columbia Fur Company. Even famous explorers Lewis and Clark came through the area and camped at the mouth of the Vermillion River, making their way to the now-popular hiking spot, Spirit Mound. As individuals came and went, a more permanent community began to grow and flourish, and Vermillion came into existence. Just like any newly-founded city, members were faced with challenges that forced them to adapt. The flood of 1881 changed Vermillion permanently, with buildings being destroyed by the unforgiving river. Merchants who had built businesses “climbed the hill” and began to rebuild the city on the bluff, moving the community away from the river to where it is today. A diphtheria epidemic claimed the lives of many individuals, especially children, during the late 1800’s. A fire destroyed all but three of its three-dozen buildings in 1875. Despite the challenges that the first members of Vermillion faced, it is now a city that is constantly growing and continually enriched by its diverse population. The University of South Dakota, established in 1862, continues to draw unique people from all over the world into the city, and is located in the heart of Vermillion, itself. Scholars from across the country and world come to learn in this beautiful city with a welcoming history. How does the city look today? With a unique culture all its own, Vermillion is a community where families can thrive. There are an unprecedented number of educational, athletic, and cultural opportunities to explore, meeting the interests and needs of just about every individual. Vermillion is also a vital arts and culture destination, with venues and events like the W.H. Over Museum, Thursdays on the Plaza, South Dakota Shakespeare Festival, a sculpture & mural walk, and much more. The world-class National Music Museum, while currently undergoing a $10 million-dollar expansion and renovation, can still be enjoyed through the satellite displays across the city. The University of South Dakota campus bustles with activity, as each new season brings premier athletics as well as a wide range of stimulating presentation, conferences, and other scholarly events to cultivate the intellects of students and community members alike. As the profile of the city rises around the state and region, Vermillion has seen steady growth in the number of companies and homegrown businesses investing in the community. New developments in housing, such as beautiful Bliss Pointe on the western bluff, continue to enhance the community’s appeal to all demographics, and construction investments have more than doubled over the past decade. Property values have grown over 40% during the same decade, while steady population growth continues to drive this healthy development. The Vermillion Area Chamber & Development Company, the University of South Dakota, the City of Vermillion, and the Clay County Commission all collaborate extensively to expand the community’s successes, efficiently tackle its challenges, and innovate for Vermillion’s future.

The cultural, educational, athletic and research opportunities offered by USD are utilized and appreciated by our community members, and they are prized as a truly special and unique feature of Vermillion.

You’ll discover several satellite displays of instruments throughout the city during the renovations.

If you’re visiting in the warm summer months, consider planning a visit to our wonderful Prentis Plunge, our stateof-the-art municipal water park that features a lazy river, floatable water walk, basketball hoop, water slides, and much more! There are so many things to do in Vermillion that you won’t likely fit it all in on your first visit. That’s OK. Come back soon to kayak on the Missouri River in the spring; watch the South Dakota Shakespeare Festival present A Midsummer Night’s Dream or cheer for the South Dakota High School All-Stars in early June; experience the fun at the Prentis Plunge waterpark; play 18 holes at The Bluffs public four-star golf course. We think you’ll find that Vermillion is the ‘Spirit of South Dakota’, close to everything, yet far from ordinary. Sincerely,

Revelry during downtown Vermillion’s “Thursdays on the Platz” summer concert series

HOLIDAY PARADE OF LIGHTS The Parade of Lights celebrates its 11th year in Vermillion, and its fourth exciting year as a stand-still parade. Scheduled near the first weekend of December, our annual Holiday Parade of Lights is unlike any other parade in the region because instead of the floats moving, the people move! Festively-lit floats are displayed along Vermillion’s historic Main Street as parade-goers saunter up and down the street, enjoying the spirit of the season. To cap off the event, Santa rides his sleigh (or sometimes, firetruck) to the Ratingen Platz for the annual tree lighting ceremony. After the tree lighting, Santa escorts children to the Edith B. Siegrist Public Library to warm up with hot cocoa, participate in festive holiday crafts, hear special music, and have the opportunity to take a picture with Santa! Jointly hosted by the Vermillion Area Chamber & Development Company and the Edith B. Siegrist Vermillion Public Library. December 5, 2019

SPIRIT MOUND HISTORICAL PRAIRIE STATE PARK As a geological anomaly in the rolling prairie of southeastern South Dakota, Spirit Mound has established itself as one of the most beautiful historical treasures along the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail. Spirit Mound still possesses the same beauty and mystery that Lewis and Clark found nearly 200 years ago, and historians say that it is one of the few remaining sites where we know with absolute certainty that the two explorers actually stood. Lewis and Clark reported that the people of the Omaha, Oto, and Yankton tribes believed that the mound had been controlled by little people who shot at anyone who dared to venture near! The Spirit Mound visitor site includes interpretive signs and a hiking trail to the summit, and it is located a mere 5 miles north of Vermillion along Highway 19.

PRENTIS PARK Located between Main and Clark on Plum Street, Prentis Park is Vermillion’s central city park. Prentis Park is now home to a state-of-the-art swimming pool, waterpark, lighted basketball courts, and a newly renovated baseball diamond.

DISCOVER THE MISSOURI RIVER RECREATIONAL AREAS The Missouri River was what inspired the early settlement of Vermillion’s first incarnation, and it was also the river that forced a slight relocation after the flood of 1881 nearly destroyed the town. Time has changed the nature of the currents, but the river is still offering abundant surprises for those who are willing to look for them. For instance, many don’t know turn-of-the-century Vermillion history, like the fact that a steamship - the North Alabama - sank just west of Clay County Park, and that it can still be seen lying beneath the surface of the water. Most people also enjoy the beautiful camping facilities at Clay County Park, and they appreciate the opportunity to dock their boats for a quiet ride along the river, or to fish at one of their favorite spots. A little further down the mighty Mo’ is the North Alabama Bend area. This large stretch was purchased by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in 2009 and is open to the public who can explore the native cottonwood forests, former river channels, sandbars, wetlands, backwaters, and the incredible wildlife that currently inhabit the river! Park your bikes or cars on one of the off-road access roads and carry your camera and picnic lunch down to the banks of the river for your very own private piece of nature.




If you’re ready for another unique Missouri River experience, just off of Hwy 19 and a little further South of North Alabama Bend is the Gunderson Backwater Area. The Missouri River continually deposits sandbars and cuts through other channels as a result of seasonal variations. Every so often, vegetation gets a chance to grow on some of these deposits and secure a long-standing feature like the Gunderson Backwater. Although the channel is neither long nor very deep, it’s an incredibly calm, beautiful, and serene feature, making for a postcard-perfect scene in which a visitor can relax in their kayak, while appreciating the panoramic sunsetthrown colors!

BOATING Ranging from a few inches to ten or twelve feet deep with some holes reaching up to forty feet, the depth of the river varies widely. Beginners benefit from remembering that the less water your boat drafts, the easier it will be to navigate. Further, the channel isn’t marked, has the tendency to shift from week to week, and there are all kinds of hidden obstacles to be on the lookout for, including sunken sandbars, snags, and sawyers. Always use the utmost caution on the river! The use of personal watercrafts, more commonly known as jet skis, is prohibited within the Missouri National Recreational River. They are only allowed on the larger reservoirs behind the dams and on the river below Ponca State Park.
