Located in Clay County, South Dakota, Wakonda has a population of 350 as of July 2008. This is a 6% reduction in population from the 2000 census.

Wakonda is a small town located in southeastern South Dakota. It was founded in 1885 and there was a constant influx of settlers into the community. The railroad had just built a new line coming into Wakonda and economic circumstances brought many businesses into town. There is a legend that "Wakonda" is an Indian word meaning "Wonderland" based upon the belief that Wakonda was located in a wonderland of productivity.

Wakonda is home to a population of almost 400 people. Wakonda offers a true "small town" atmosphere where people are friendly and work together as a community. Wakonda is home to many local businesses, as well as five churches, and the Irene/Wakonda elementary school. Wakonda also has a wonderful city park, which is an area suited for many activities for children and adults. This quaint little town has much to offer any visitor or resident!

Visit Instructions:
To post a log to an existing U.S. Post Office waymark, you will need to post a picture of the front of the building, with the name of the post office in the background if that is possible.

A description of your Post Office is required, such as when it was built, history, outstanding or unique features, population of the city or town, just do a quick internet search and find an interesting bit of information about the city or town and add it to the long description, to make it more interesting. Even just adding in the population of the area can give others an idea of how many people this post office serves. This description should be at least three sentences.

If your Post Office has any unusual or unique features that you feel others would enjoy viewing, additional pictures are always welcome.
Including your gps device in the picture is not necessary, but wouldn't be cause for disapproval, as long as all other details of your log are acceptable.
