PICKSTOWN, S.D. (AP) - NBC’s Tom Brokaw came home to the South Dakota town of Pickstown on Friday to help dedicate a museum.

The Yankton Press and Dakotan (https://bit.ly/1iuTR5Q ) reports that the museum is the culmination of a nearly three-year project by a group of early and current residents interested in preserving the history before it was lost in generational turnover.

Brokaw was an eight-year resident of the southeast South Dakota town along the Missouri River during the late 1940s and early 1950s.

The dedication is part of the state’s 125-year Statehood Anniversary events.

This weekend will feature a reunion for former and current Pickstown residents.
