We are the Leduc Historic Estate, a historic site of the Dakota County Historical Society. Here we strive to teach history and engage all of our visitors in meaningful interactions with our site and our story. We are the home of General William G. Leduc and his family in Hastings from 1866 until the family sold the home in 1940. General Leduc is larger than life and his home is an iconic piece of the landscape of Hastings and in the story of American Architecture as the Gothic Revival masterpiece of Andrew Jackson Downing. We are open for tours Thursday through Sunday, May through October and we would be honored for you to visit us!
