2019 Marks the 140th Anniversary of the Yankton State Hospital --- The South Dakota Human Services Center. 

To commemorate the anniversary we will be opening a special exhibit later in 2019.

Yankton State Hospital:

Minds, Methods, and Medicine

will focus on bridging the gap between the legends & truths about the campus then and now. It will be designed to help the general public understand the stories of the hospital from a historical viewpoint.
