The Forest Avenue HISTORICAL DISTRICT
Vermillion, South Dakota 1873-1980
I wrote this book several years ago after helping Forest Avenue in Vermillion, South Dakota to become a Historical District. In doing research on the houses, I became fascinated with the people who had lived in them over the years. I attemped to locate the families who had lived on the street and find their stories, and when I could, their photographs. Click on "Forest Avenue" above to open the book, which includes and extensive index.
