Scherr-Howe Event Center

The Scherr-Howe Event Center (Mobridge City Auditorium) is a public building that has been on the National Historic Registry since 1986. It was built as a WPA project in the 1930s and houses 10 early murals from renowned Native American artist, Oscar Howe. Howe painted the murals in the 1942, starting on April 18 and ending on June 22. On June 5, Howe was inducted into the US Army at Fort Snelling, but he received a 14 day furlough to finish the project.  The murals were restored in 2014.
