Museum Program Features Earliest Sioux City Images
Rarely-seen, early Sioux City photographs will be featured at “History at High Noon: Founders of Sioux City” on Thursday, January 17 at 12:05 p.m. Attendees are invited to bring their own lunches to the free presentation at the Sioux City Public Museum.
Presenter Grace Linden, former Museum curator of history, will share the history of the men and women who founded Sioux City 165 years ago this month. Sioux City traces its founding back to 1854 when the city was platted by government surveyor, Dr. John K. Cook. Cook was also the president of the Sioux City Townsite Company that sold lots to early settlers and promoted the city. It wasn't until January 16, 1857, however, that Sioux City became an incorporated city.
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.
