LeDuc Historic Estate
1629 Vermillion Street
Hastings, MN 55033
The LeDuc Historic Estate is owned by the City of Hastings and managed by Dakota County Historical Society. Built in the mid-1860s, the LeDuc Estate in Hastings, MN is a beautiful example of the design work of Andrew Jackson Downing complete with residence, carriage house, and ice house.
Donated to the Minnesota Historical Society in the 1950s, it was used as an antiques shop by the previous owner until the mid-90s when it was acquired by Dakota County Historical Society. In partnership with the City of Hastings, the building was restored to its former glory and now serves as a museum.
