Robert Thue Named To Board of Directors

He is a member of the Yankton County Historical Society, Yankton Lions Club, and Yankton First United Methodist Church

My interest in Historical Preservation:

My grandmother Thue (along with her parents) homesteaded south of Lake Poinsett in the 1880s. My grandfather Thue homesteaded east of Lake Norden in 1882. This homestead is still being farmed by his great-grandson today.

As a teacher of South Dakota history, I found that many students knew very little about the history of our state, the local history of this area, or even their own family history. I strongly feel that, in order to know where we are going, we must first find out where we have been.
