ABERDEEN, a city and the county-seat of Brown County, [[South 
Dakota]], [[United States|U.S.A.]], about 125 m.  N.E. of Pierre.  Pop. (1890) 
3182; (1900) 4087, of whom 889 were foreign born; (1905) 5841;

and St Paul, the Great Northern, the Minneapolis and St 
Louis, and the Chicago and North Western railways.  It is 
the financial and trade centre for the northern part of the 
state, a fine agricultural region, and in 1908 had five banks 
and a number of wholesale houses.  The city is the seat of the 
Northern Normal and Industrial School, a state institution, 
and has a Carnegie Library; the principal buildings are the 
court house and the government buildings.  Artesian wells 
furnish good water-power, and artesian-well supplies, grain 
pitchers, brooms, chemicals and flour are manufactured.  The 
municipality owns and operates the water-works.  Aberdeen 
was settled in 1880, and was chartered as a city in 1883.
