Public input sought for State Historical Society programming

The South Dakota State Historical Society is seeking input from the public for the development of future programming.

Citizens are being asked to complete a short online survey. The survey can be accessed from the society’s website at or by logging on to

The survey asks people what topics in South Dakota history interest them, as well as what kinds of programming they like.

“The State Historical Society collects, preserves, interprets and promotes the history of the people of South Dakota,” said Jay D. Vogt, director of the State Historical Society at the Cultural Heritage Center in Pierre. “One way the society interprets that history is through public programming, and the survey will help the society to better focus its programming efforts.

“Suggestions from the public are of great importance in planning future outreach,” Vogt continued. “We want to be sensitive to the desires of the people so that our programming matches their interests.”

The survey will be available through June 9.
