So many historic places to visit in Sioux City, but one of our favorites in the Chief War Eagle Monument. From the bluff it is on, you can be standing in Iowa while looking into both Nebraska and South Dakota.

Love to take the walk up to Chief War Eagle grave. So much history. Overlooks the South Dakota, Nebraska and Iowa states. The sight also affords a view of the Big Sioux River merging into the Missouri River.

We did not go on any of the trails but it appears to have a few that would be worth hiking. The view from the statue is wonderful.

He is buried on the top of a bluff overlooking the Missouri River. War Eagle was a believer in peace and working together. You can see three states from the bluffs.

This was a very interesting piece of local history. A quiet peaceful place that doesn't take long to visit not much of a hike but a very nice wide paved sidewalk. The only slightly disappointing part is the 10-foot fall tall chain link fence put...More
