Sioux City celebrates its unique history with week long events

Posted:
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

For the past 10 years, the Sioux City Historic Preservation Commission has teamed up with local businesses to celebrate Sioux City's unique history.

The week long event kicks off Saturday with the 6th annual Barstool Open, a mini-golf pub crawl on Historic 4th Street.

On Sunday, speaker Rudy Christian explores cultural changes in the 21st century with "A Place for Trades."

Skipping ahead to Tuesday, the Iowa State Historic Preservation Office will present a free workshop on the Historic Tax Credit Program.

On Wednesday, a Terra Cotta expert will host a discussion on the history, restoration and contemporary exploration in public art.

The week wraps up on May 10th for National Train Day.

Riverside's Railroad Museum will host a day full of classic cars and trains.

Sioux City city leaders say it's important to celebrate the history of our community.

"Historic preservation is an effective tool for managing growth, revitalizing neighborhoods, featuring local pride and maintaining community character while enhancing livability," said Sioux City Council Member, Dan Moore.
