Humanities Iowa is pleased to announce a $40,000 Council Conducted Partnership with the Siouxland Historical Railroad Association in support of their project celebrating the 100th Anniversary History of the Milwaukee Railroad Shops Historic District.

The Milwaukee Railroad Shops Historic District is one of several preserved steam-era railroad shop environments in North America. It celebrated its 100th anniversary this year. The Siouxland Historic Railroad Association will develop educational programs around the history of the site in Sioux City: the former Sioux City Roundhouse, Repair Shops and Engine Terminal, including a permanent exhibit, public programs and a pictorial history book.

Events and programming will take place in Sioux City, IA, with the exhibit opening planned for May 2018.
