Sioux City Overview
Sioux City, Iowa is located in northwestern Iowa and shares its borders with North Sioux City, South Dakota and South Sioux City, Nebraska. With a population of over 80,000, Sioux City is separated from Nebraska by the Missouri River and South Dakota by the Big Sioux River. The city is also located adjacent to the Iowa Loess Hills formed during the last ice age.
The Lewis and Clark Expedition passed through the area in 1804 and again in 1806. One of their members, Sgt. Floyd, died on the expedition and is buried nearby. A momument to him stands on a bluff overlooking the Missouri River. Another historical figure is Chief War Eagle. This Native American was key in getting Native Americans and white people to live together.
Sioux City has several city parks and historical sites, Stone State Park, a visitor center on a riverboat and a Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center. The Historic 4th St downtown also has several buildings of interest.
