More About
Brookings, SD

About BrookingsAlthough Brookings ranks among the state's largest cities, it's very much a laid-back college town. Agriculture fuels the area economy, and diversified plants and crops thrive in the rich soil of the Big Sioux River valley. Several attractions draw on the town's agricultural heritage.

Early residents named the town after Wilmot Wood Brookings, the prominent pioneer who helped organize the railroad through the region. In 2001, three men canoeing on the Big Sioux north of Brookings discovered evidence of what is believed to be an 11,000-year-old mammoth kill site.
