Menno Pioneer History Association Museum We are proud to share the history of our forefathers and their way of life by creating a living museum dedicated to the preservation of the cultural and ethnical heritage found in southeastern South Dakota.

The museum is home to exhibits and memorabilia from Menno's founding to the community's early development. Patrons can view artifacts dating back from 1874 and ranging from a Schnitzelbank to a covered wagon wheel to a German helmet and a spinning wheel.

The Gottlieb Schmitt House is 120 years old and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. When entering the Schmitt House Museum, you have the sense of stepping back in time to a family dwelling of the late 1800's. All items are on loan or were donated by residents, former residents or pioneer families.

The Annex used to be the shoe shop. The museum is funded by the historical society memberships and other donations.

The premier event of the year for the MPHA is the annual Power Show in September.
