Sioux City Journal celebrates 150th anniversary with new museum exhibit


The Sioux City Journal is celebrating their 150th anniversary, and one downtown Sioux City landmark is looking back at the paper's storied career.

The Sioux City Public Museum has opened a brand new exhibit, called "Sioux City Journal: 150 Years in Siouxland."

The exhibit features artifacts, photos, and pieces of the Journal's old Douglas Street building.

The paper was founded by Samuel Tait Davis in 1864.

Journal employees helped accumulate artifacts for the exhibit.

Today's editor, Chris Coates, says they're enjoying the remembrance of all they've accomplished in Siouxland over 150 years.

"What's really important about this exhibit is that the newspaper chronicled so much of that early history of Sioux City. We've changed with the times. This exhibit really looks at the important people, as well as the important events, that really shaped our history and the city," Coates said.

The exhibit will remain on display in the museum until December.
