Report from the Field: Rehabilitating Yankton's Historic Mead Building

Elizabeth J. Almlie, a historic preservation specialist with the South Dakota State Historical Society, presents a progress report on the rehabilitation of the Mead Building in Yankton. The three-story structure was built in 1909 as the women’s unit of the State Hospital for the Insane and sat unused for nearly three decades. Thanks to the efforts of the Yankton County Historical Society and others, the Neo-Renaissance-style structure will soon house a museum and archives.
