Significance: The town of Vermillion owes its existence in part to Darwin M. Inman, a New Yorker who arrived in the Dakota Territory in 1874. He was a pioneer businessman, politician and educator. He opened a private bank, the Bank of Vermillion, and played important role in shaping the growth of the Territory by providing the capital and land to settlers during the Land Boom years. His bank later became chartered and was re-named the First National Bank. He served the public as a territorial and state legislator. He was one of the men who founded the University of South Dakota. In 1881 a flood in Vermillion destroyed original structures. Rebuilding immediately followed. The Inman House was among those newly constructed.
