Milwaukee Railroad Shops listed on National Register of Historic Places

SIOUX CITY (KTIV) – A Siouxland site is now part of the National Register of Historic Places.

The Milwaukee Railroad Shops in Sioux City was approved as a Historic District by the National Park Service.

Five National Register-listed districts now exist in Sioux City.

On Wednesday, November 14, Sioux City Mayor Pro-Tem Dan Moore and Councilwoman Rhonda Capron will present the official plaque recognizing the listing to the Sioux City Railroad Museum.

The 30-acre site was built between 1916-1918 by the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railroad Company.

The site was built to house their roundhouse, locomotive,  car repair shops, and steam engine terminal for their rail networks in Iowa and the Dakotas.

The site became home to the Sioux City Railroad Museum in 1995.
