Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Plotted and planned as a crossroads town along the developing Milwaukee Railroad, Aberdeen, South Dakota was first settled in 1881. With the arrival of the railroad in 1882, Aberdeen flourished. It earned the nickname of Hub City, serving as a railroad junction and agricultural center. Aberdeen's ability to adapt to a changing economy has led to steady growth and has made it the third largest city in the state.

Using more than 200 images, authors Tom Hayes and Mike Wiese take the reader on a historic tour of Aberdeen. Drawing on their immense postcard collection, they tell the story of this tight-knit community and the incredible people who are an integral part of its history.

About the Author

Mr. Hayes and Mr. Wiese are noted collectors of Aberdeen and South Dakota postcards. Mr. Hayes is a lifelong resident of Aberdeen and an amateur historian of the Dakota Territory. Mr. Wiese is the former president of the Aberdeen Chamber of Commerce and is the current Brown County Commissioner.
