The Dakota Classis Archives document the corporate institutional life of a regional classis of the Reformed Church in America based in South and North Dakota—and, at times, beyond—in the late nineteenth and the first three-fourths of the twentieth centuries. The records include the minutes of the classis and related material. Collectively, these archives provide evidence for the historical growth of a multi-generational Dutch-immigrant Protestant denomination in the trans-Mississippi prairies and northern plains over the span of almost a century.
