Senator Curt Jones and Fort Sisseton
Curt Jones loved history for a lot of reasons. He saw history as a collection of great stories that can be told and retold. He saw history as a book of lessons to be learned. Most of all, he saw history as an experience that you can keep only if you give it to others. As a good neighbor, a concerned citizen, and the chairman of the Governor's historic Fort Sisseton Commission, Curt forcefully championed the restoration, promotion, and transformation of this fort into one of the finest family vacation sites in this region. All of the visitors to this old fort who come away with a better understand and appreciation of South Dakota's past are walking in Curt Jones' footsteps. All of us who, because of this historic place, have a clearer and broader vision of South Dakota's future are standing upon Curt Jones' shoulders. To his memory and to his legacy, this plaque is dedicated.
