Hutchinson County

Created in 1862 and formally organized in 1871, Hutchinson county is home to several communities of Mennonites and Hutterites (Anabaptists) who came to the region in the late 1800s. Dimock (68 minutes to Yankton), Freeman (41 minutes), Menno (40 minutes), Parkston (63 minutes), and Tripp (52 minutes) celebrate their heritage while welcoming newcomers. Agriculture is the main industry, supplemented by manufacturing.

Freeman Academy provides a private first grade through high school education. Public education is offered by Freeman School District, Menno Public School, and Tripp-Delmont School District.
