Henry location: on US Highway 212, 20 miles west of South Dakota's 4th largest city of Watertown, which is located on I-29, US 212, and US 81. We are in the northeast region of South Dakota.
Henry is home to the longest running organized school alumni association in South Dakota. It is also home to South Dakota's largest/oldest living cottonwood tree, located on main street. It measures 20' around, and stands 95 ft. tall, and was planted in 1882. It is locally known as the "centennial cottonwood", as it was planted the same year as Henry was organized. It was one of 3 cottonwoods planted in a row, and was the only one to survive; it has outlasted two tornadoes, and 1 major fire (in front of commercial buildings)
Henry has a k-12 school, four churches (St. Henry's Catholic Church; Henry United Methodist Church; St.Paul's Lutheran Church; and Our Savior's Lutheran Church (rural Henry).

Henry has a monthly newsletter that it published for area citizens. It informs the public on city news, events, and upcoming information. It is vital in good communication.
