Lunchtime Program Features T.S. Martin Family

Post Date:01/07/2020 4:11 PM
One of Sioux City’s well-known families and long-time owners of the Peirce Mansion will be featured at “History at High Noon: T.S. Martin Family” on Thursday, January 16 at 12:05 p.m. at the Sioux City Public Museum. Attendees are invited to bring their own lunches to the free presentation.

From 1880 to 1948, the T. S. Martin & Company department store was at the forefront of Sioux City’s retail industry. Thomas Martin and his family were leading forces in the development of Sioux City’s commerce and real estate in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Through historic photographs, presenter Haley Aguirre, Archival Records Clerk, will explore the family behind the store, and how the Martins managed to establish and maintain one of the most successful businesses in the Midwest.

The Sioux City Public Museum is located at 607 4th Street in downtown Sioux City.  For more information, call 712-279-6174 or visit siouxcitymuseum.org.
