Aberdeen was first established as a town in 1879, though settlement had happened sporadically over the preceding decade. Like many towns and cities in the region, Aberdeen was built as a railroad town, and this was evident in its initial growth, as the town was incorporated in 1882. Aberdeen quickly became known as the “Hub City of the Dakotas” as it was the location of no less than four different railroad depots. Though Aberdeen’s days as a warehousing and distribution center are mostly over, the city continues to survive and grow thanks mainly to a shift in its economic focus away from warehousing and into a more diversified economic situation.
During the summer months, average daily highs in Aberdeen tend to reach into the mid-to-upper 80’s, with overnight lows often dropping down into the mid-to-upper 50’s. During the winter months is when the weather can really takes its toll on auto transport services to or from the town, and it’s kind of a double-whammy considering Aberdeen is far from the most popular auto transport area in South Dakota, which in turn is hardly a popular location within the country. That said, average winter highs only reach into the mid-to-upper 20’s in Aberdeen, while overnight lows usually drop into single digits. Snow is also common, which makes it less attractive for auto transport companies, but it’s not impossible to find services to or from Aberdeen in the winter. Just more expensive.
