History at High Noon: Riverside Story
12:05 p.m. at the Sioux City Public Museum
Presenter Tom Munson, Archives Manager, will highlight the history of this area of Sioux City and how it came to function almost like a town of its own. Theophile Bruguier, one of Sioux City’s pioneers, settled in southern Riverside in 1849. By the 1880s, Riverside would become the city’s playground; a park to escape the hustle of downtown. By the 1890s, northern Riverside boasted three brickyards and a newly-established residential addition. Commerce and culture would thrive in Riverside by the 20th century, active with retailers, churches, and schools. Attendees are invited to bring their own lunches.
