Sioux City Nicknames Highlighted

Post Date:08/10/2017 3:26 PM
Learn more about the various monikers for Sioux City itself as well city areas and landmarks at History at High Noon: Sioux City Nicknames on Thursday, August 17 at 12:05 p.m. Attendees are encouraged to bring lunches to this free program at the Sioux City Public Museum.

Sioux City and its environs have earned many different nicknames throughout history, but just what do they all mean? How did it earn the name "Little Chicago?" Who really called it the "Cow Town with an Opera House?" Was there really gold in "Prospect Hill"? And what does "Sioux" really mean, anyway? These questions and more will be answered by presenter Haley Aguirre, Archival Records Clerk, in her first History at High Noon presentation. Aguirre has a Bachelor of Arts in History from the University of South Dakota.

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