Pipestone National Monument

Overview

Introduction

The quarries at Pipestone National Monument, just north of the city of Pipestone, attracted Native Americans from all over northern North America for thousands of years. They went to Pipestone to mine the deep-red rock that artisans fashioned into peace pipes and other ceremonial objects. Native American craftspeople preserve this tradition today at the park. The Song of Hiawatha pageant takes place nearby on weekends during July and early August. 165 mi/265 km southwest of Minneapolis and St. Paul.
