The South Dakota State Historical Society has added two more names to the National Register of Historic Places:  one property in Bridgewater and another in Tea.

State historic preservation officer and director of the State Historical Society Jay D. Vogt says that properties listed in the registry must play an important role in the culture, history and heritage of South Dakota.  Vogt also says,

When properties get listed, it shows that their owners take pride in their role in preserving that culture, heritage and history.

The two properties newly added to the National Register of Historic Places of South Dakota are the First Presbyterian Church in Bridgewater, South Dakota and the Hansen-Hagedorn Barn near Tea, South Dakota.

The First Presbyterian Church in Bridgewater was built in 1928, and was added to the registry because of the church’s architecture.  The religious architecture of this Prairie Style church was first popularized by Frank Lloyd Wright and was designed by Mitchell architect Walter J. Dixon.

Because of the importance to the history of agriculture in Lincoln County and its construction, the Hansen-Hagedorn Barn near Tea has also been added to the National Register of Historic Places in South Dakota.  The Dutch gambrel style red barn with white trim is a one and a half story barn that was built around 1916.

The National Register is a list that identifies properties important to American history, architecture, archaeology, engineering and culture.  To be placed on the National Register,  buildings, sites, structures and objects should be at least 50 years old and have historical significance.  The properties must also be well maintained.
