Replica of the Statue of Liberty was rededicated at Liberty Elementary

Posted:

After many years in storage, an iconic Sioux City statue finds a new home.

The replica of the Statue of Liberty was rededicated at Liberty Elementary School Friday. Fourth graders recited a poem and sang a song about Lady Liberty, as the historic statue gets ready to once again greet visitors of all ages.

"Having it in view of the public again, it's an important deal. It's been basically in a back room of the museum until we had that deal last summer where we had an exhibit with it for awhile," said Mayor Bob Scott.

The rededication was made possible by the partnership between the city of Sioux City and the Sioux City Community School District. Lady Liberty sat in front of the city Municipal Auditorium from 1950 until the Tyson Events Center opened in 2003.

It was a gift from a local Boy Scout troop.
