Significance: Built five years prior to South Dakota statehood, this house is one of the few surviving 19th century structures in the vicinity of Vermillion. It is a rare permanent frontier structure with a few decorative details. Its builder, Horace J. Austin, came from one of the first groups of settlers to arrive in Dakota in 1859. Following the Civil War he returned to Vermillion and became active in public affairs. He served as a state legislator until his death in 1891.
