Welcome Letter

Welcome to the City of Aberdeen!


It is a pleasure for me to extend personally, as well as on behalf of the City Council and mayor, a cordial welcome to the City of Aberdeen’s website. We believe Aberdeen to be one of the finest cities in the state. Aberdeen, called the Hub City for decades, serves as a regional hub for commerce, education, shopping, and medical services for northeast South Dakota and southern North Dakota.

The City of Aberdeen was incorporated in 1882. Aberdeen is the third largest city in South Dakota and also the county seat of Brown County. Brown County has led the state for the last seven years in pheasant hunting. Furthermore, Aberdeen offers unique activities for fun at Wylie Park for the visiting family.

The purpose of the website is to be an information resource in giving visitors a small snapshot about Aberdeen. This website provides updated information about city government, recreational activities, and community affairs. I encourage you to view the photo gallery so you can view the community facilities and the beauty of our community.

Thanks for visiting our site.

Lynn Lander
City Manager
