BROOKINGS COUNTY VETERANS MEMORIAL Located at the intersection of 6th Street and Western Avenue 605.697.7778 For more than 20 years, the Brookings County Veterans Memorial has dominated the skyline on the western edge of Brookings and is the site of annual services held in honor of veterans. The memorial, honoring all Brookings County veterans, was built through the efforts of several individuals and groups including the county’s nine veteran’s organizations and their auxiliaries. It is regarded as one of the most spectacular monuments in the area and is reportedly one of the more photographed structures in the region. BROOKINGS HISTORIC DISTRICTS 520 3rd Street, Suite 230 | 605.692.6281 | Central Residential Historic District The majority of the homes in the residential historic district were built between 1891 and 1941. Lumber yards provided pattern books, but residents created their own, individual dream pattern. The trees provided inspiration and a sophisticated appearance to the neighborhood. Commercial Historic District With each brick laid and concrete poured, the streets in downtown Brookings tell a story of Classic revival and Art Deco, along with Beaux-Arts and Romanesque architecture. A total of 59 buildings line Main Avenue, with 83 percent of the district construction taking place between 1894 and 1928.

Sexauer Seed Historic District Added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2001, the Sexauer Seed Historic District is located south of the Commercial Historic District on Main Avenue and comprised of 10 structures. One of the main structures, the Sexauer Seed Company grain elevator, was established in 1897 is used primarily for agriculture. University Residential Historic District As one of the oldest residential historic districts in town, the 17-block district dates back to the late nineteenth and middle twentieth centuries. Dating back from 1895 to 1948, the 177 houses and 98 secondary buildings really tell a story of the beginning of the residential development of Brookings in conjunction with SDSU.

CENTENNIAL PIONEER CABIN Located in Pioneer Park on 6th Street and 1st Avenue 605.693.4875 Dedicated on July 4, 1989, the Centennial Pioneer Cabin was built in efforts to remember the past and appreciate the pioneering founders of Brookings. The local Genealogical Society developed the idea of a lasting tribute for all generations to enjoy. The organization set out on foot exploring the Big Sioux River in order to locate trees native to South Dakota. The landowners were more than happy to harvest a few trees for the lifelong monument. A few volunteers helped to construct the cabin, while members of the Genealogical Society provided the furnishings and also lent a hand at hosting visitors. Now almost 30 years later, the cabin stands as an appreciation for the contributions set forth by the state’s pioneer homesteaders. The cabin is open to the public by appointment only.
