Sioux City looking to the past

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -- Sioux City is celebrating its history. Saturday kicks off Historic Preservation Week.

"Promise-Potential-Preservation" is the theme for the week long celebration. It kicks off Saturday with a pub crawl from noon to 4 on Historic 4th Street.

Sioux City's Historic Preservation Commission is also planning an event at the Milwaukee Railroad Shop on Saturday, and the events conclude on May 6 with the premiere of the George Lindblade film, "The History Behind Historic 4th Street From the People Who Live It."

"They've interviewed a whole bunch of people that are still alive that knew about and know about that street. It's a whole, when you see the film, it's a whole different world that isn't there anymore," said Jim Jung.

The Sioux City Historic Preservation Commission also honored Lindblade with the first ever "Treasure of Sioux City" award at today's Sioux City Manager's meeting. It's an award that will be handed out each year during preservation week. Lindblade was chosen for his years of documenting Sioux City's history in film.
