Henry J. King Collection 

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
  • H2008-077 & H2009-040

150 photographs need to be digitized and cataloged. . . . . . . . . . goal $2025

Yes! I want to help make possible the preservation of the Henry J. King Collection!
