The LeDuc Historic Estate is owned by the City of Hastings and managed by Dakota County Historical Society. This important Civil War mansion was built over several years by General William G. LeDuc, and completed in 1865. Donated to the Minnesota Historical Society in the 1950s, it was used as an antiques shop by the previous owner until the mid-90s when it was acquired by Dakota County Historical Society. In partnership with the City of Hastings, the building was restored to its former glory and now serves as a museum. Please call ahead for hours and seasonal timelines.
