at the museum

Here is a summer plan for you and your family!


WHAT? Visit the Depot Museum

WHERE? Right here in De Smet!

WHEN? June, July and August from FROM 10 A.M. to 4 P.M. – Tuesday through Friday

WHY? To experience history of De Smet!

One example of this experience is how communication has changed in the use of telephones. Check out the print shop and the grocery store area – you will see the type of phone used back in the 1900’s. Does it bring back memories of the “party line?”

Then came the dial phones which can confuse today’s generation. The 1990’s brought us the push button and mobile phones.

In the year 2000, the introduction of the cell phone brought us many possibilities of social connections.

Whatever the type of phones we have used over the years, it is important for us to remember how they all shared that special connection with each other.
