SIOUX CITY, IA (KTIV) – The Sioux City Public Museum shared articles from when former President George Herbert Walker Bush visited Sioux City.

Local curators say President George H.W. Bush visited Sioux City several times in 1987 and 1990.

He was here during the time of his midterm election, and when tragedy hit Siouxland during the crash of Flight 232 at the Sioux Gate airport in 1990.

Bush is one of 15 presidents who has visited Sioux City.

“Iowa had been so important in the election of presidents as we are Iowas first caucus state and Sioux City being a major city in Iowa Sioux City’s role in politics is always fairly significant,” says Thomas Munson, Archive Manager at the Sioux City Public Museum.

The 41st president passed away on November 30th at 94.
