to preserve the rich history of the Dakota and their relationship with early Minnesota settlers and Christian missionaries, and to explore contrasting cultural and religious viewpoints.
Announcement: House Closed Temporarily
The historic Gideon and Agnes Pond House will be closed for visits and programs until further notice. We will wait to send out the April-June newsletter until we have a definite date when it will be open again. Of course, Pond Dakota Mission Park remains open and is a beautiful place for a walk or bike ride.
See VideoView the award-winning video, “The Pond House,” which traces the history of the house through its builder and his great-grandson, and focuses on their important relationship with the Dakota people.
