Pipestone is located in the Historic Prairies Region where US 75 and Hwy 23 meet near Pipestone National Monument.
Pipestone is the Pipestone County seat.
It has for centuries been seen as a sacred area for all Native American tribal people who use the Ceremonial Chanupa (Pipe), and it remains a pivotal part of these tribes' spiritual beliefs. The Chanupa that has been used for generations, and is still used today, in ceremonies by Native Tribes all over the Continent of America originates from the Red stone quarries in Pipestone. The Catlinite stone that the Chanupas are made from is quarried by tribally enrolled Native Americans only at the quarries in Pipestone.
