Presenter Grace Linden, former Museum curator of history, will share the history of the men and women who founded Sioux City 165 years ago this month. Sioux City traces its founding back to 1854 when the city was platted by government surveyor, Dr. John K. Cook. Cook was also the president of the Sioux City Townsite Company that sold lots to early settlers and promoted the city. It wasn't until January 16, 1857, however, that Sioux City became an incorporated city.

Attendees are invited to bring their own lunches.
