Helena Erd Seiter · Adolph Seiter

The Dacotah House, located on this site, was built in 1859 by Adolph Seiter and Frank Erd. Adolph's wife, Helena Erd Seiter soon established her fame in the kitchen. During the Dakota Conflict of 1862, Helena fled in a wagon with her children to St. Peter. She is credited with convincing the authorities there of the reality of the outbreak. Military aid was sent to New Ulm. The Dacotah House was a refuge and hospital during the conflict and later military headquarters.

For many years the Dacotah Hotel was a central gathering place because of its wonderful food, hospitality and renowned visitors. The Seiter/Johnson families were the proprietors until 1948, when it was sold to the Esser family. The Citizens State Bank purchased it in 1968 and operated the hotel until its closing in 1971.
