About This Project

In early September of 1920, at a local fair in Flandreau SD, a jar of preserved pumpkin was awarded the auspicious title of Second in Show. Despite its delectable qualities, the jar was sealed, stored, and ultimately forgotten. It was later donated to the Moody County Historical Society Museum for public display. We believe this sample represents an unprecedented opportunity to study the microbiological and chemical environment of the pre-industrial Great Plains.
