The Monument is the site of Sergeant Floyd's grave, the only member for the L&C expedition to die on the trip. A brief history is presented in plaques at the site overlooking the Missouri. The construction on I-29 makes it a bit hard to get to, but it is worth the effort. Approaching from the South is easier.

This is a must-do stop on the Lewis and Clark trail, since it commemorates the death of the one member of the party who did not survive the trip. Not sure how interesting the general public will find it. There is a tall obelisk on the site, plus an overlook over the Missouri River valley. Good signs on site summarize... More

Passing through the area gave us a nice little break, some historical information and a beautiful view of the area. Public restrooms were available.

This is one of the best scenic overlooks in Sioux City, and one of the few that doesn't seem to have shady characters loitering. My teenager likes to stop here to look for Pokemon, but I love to sit on one of the benches for a while and take in the view.

It was interesting to read about Sgt Floyd who has so many things named after him in Sioux City. We went here after attending the museum, so we had a little background on him first.

This monument honors Sgt. Floyd, who was the only member of the Lewis and Clark expedition to die on the trip. The obelisk is very visible from the freeway, but a little hard to get to, requiring a tour through a residential neighborhood. The tourist brochures give the address, so if you use GPS, that is not an issue.The site... More

This has a great view of all of sioux city. When we went it was extremely hot because there isn't any shade, but the view was worth it.
