Sgt Floyd, must see US history stop. Tells the story of Sgt Floyd, who was the only member of the Lewis and Clark exp. to die during the trip. Go In the evening, awesome view of the surrounding area and river. Kids love it.

In the style of the Washington Monument, this is a nice place to see the monument dedicated to the only member to die on the Lewis and Clark expedition, Sgt. Charles Floyd. Accessible from Hwy 75 and can be viewed via Interstate 29. Provides history of the expedition and of the monument itself. And of course a great view of... More

Best view of the Missouri in the Sioux City area. This is a tomb of the only person who died on the Lewis and Clark trip. You can imagine the journey as you stand above the Missouri River and see the vastness of the area.

I enjoyed the plaques with brief history. Easy walk to views. Looks like a mini Washington monument.

I read a little about Lewis and Clark before we started out road trip from Georgia to Seattle, so we decided to stop and see this memorial. It was well worth the stop. It should be a brief stop, since there are 3-4 info stations, the monument itself and then a very short walk to look off and see the... More

Good view of South Sioux City and the Missouri River. Nice shaded picnic tables. Has a rest room. It's not on I-29 but to get there from I-29 exit 143 Singing Hills Blvd, it's about 1 mile north on old Highway 75.

This is a rather large obelisk that faces a bluff overlooking the Missouri River, downtown Sioux City and the I-29. It's high enough for you to get a pretty nice view of the surroundings. The obelisk is a big stone tower. It's not much to look at, unless you're really into obelisks. The history behind the commemoration is more interesting... More

Great that this monument of 22 year old Sergeant Floyd was put into place. He was the only member of the Lewis & Clark expedition -- 8,000 miles -- 4 years journey to pass away.
