A nice piece of history from the Lewis and Clark expedition. Also some really nice views form the hill it sits on!
The Floyd Monument overlooks I-29 and is accessed off of Iowa 75. It marks the burial place for Sgt. Charles Floyd, the only person to die on the Lewis & Clark Expedition.

Another place with great views overlooking the tristate area and rivers. This was the first National Historic Monument and commemorates Sgt. Charles Floyd of the Lewis and Clark expedition.
There was more than meets the eye to this simple monument site.

It is worth it to stop and check out the monument as it portrays an important part of our history as it relates to Lewis & Clark. It is not hard to get to, at least once the road construction is complete.
We always stop for a bit here when coming through Sioux City. It's a peaceful view where you can see for miles. Below is the busy highway & Missouri River. You can imagine how it looked back when Sergeant Floyd lost his life here far from his own home.
