Plan a Visit

Inside the historic site's history center, visitors can explore exhibits on Dakota history, life and culture. On the grounds, self-guided trails interpret agency activities and take visitors to the restored 1861 stone warehouse and the Redwood Ferry crossing, the point where a road between the Agency and Fort Ridgely once crossed the Minnesota River and the site of the Battle of Redwood Ferry.

Visitors can see the difference between traditional Dakota farming practices and those taught by Agency employees in the site's period gardens and farm plots, learn about the Agency's purpose and daily operation and explore the underlying causes of the U.S.-Dakota War of 1862.
