South Sioux Falls—Yesterday and Today
A Rich City History
This community was founded in the spring of 1888 when Richard F. Pettigrew and S. L. Tate donated four acres of land for the Norwegian Lutheran Normal School, now known as Augustana College. In February 1890, the community was incorporated by a 63-9 vote. The community continued to grow over the years, at one point boasting a woolen mill, soap factory, an axle grease factory and a six-story factory plan. It was also home to Sioux Falls’ first airport, Soo Skyways.
