SIOUX CTY NEIGHBORHOODS

FROM THE SOUDAN AND SNOOS ALLEY TO CATFISH ROW AND HELL'S HALF ACRE: VISIT THE NEIGHBORHOODS OF SIOUX CITY AND LEARN HOW THEY WERE NAMED

The Sioux City Public Museum’s Archival Clerk, Haley Aguirre, invites us to journey, by photographs, through the neighborhoods of Sioux City. Have you ever wondered where the “green” in Greenville originated? Who decided to use the terms “East or South Bottoms”?

Aguirre’s presentation overviews many of Sioux City’s thirty-some different neighborhoods, explains how and when each got its name, and shows where the area is located. During the program, we will visit Cole’s Addition, Smith’s Villa, Snoos Alley, Kelly Park, Cecilia Park Sunset View and other interesting sites. Historic maps and photographs, both past and present, will highlight the unique and important history of this exciting little city.

Adequate time will be given for discussion, memories and questions about this fascinating subject.
