The Henry J. King Collection has been adopted.
Thanks to the kindness of a generous donor, this collection will be digitized.
The framed images were donated in 1961 by Mr. and Mrs. Blakely King in memory of Mr. King’s grandfather Captain Henry J. King, a Missouri River boatman during the early days of Chamberlain.
- The collection consists of photographs and postcards that were held in two separate frames at the Brule County Courthouse.
- Most of the images are of steamboats and the freighting industry along the Missouri River during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries
