About the Peirce Mansion:
John Peirce's elegant home located at 2901 Jackson Street has been a part of Sioux City's history for over 120 years! Completed in 1893, the Victorian-era home is constructed with South Dakota quartzite making it a unique example of Richardsonian Romanesque architecture.
After being purchased by the Junior League of Sioux City for $10,000 in 1958, the mansion was donated to the City of Sioux City for use as a cultural building. The mansion served as the site of the Sioux City Public Museum from 1961 to 2011 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Today, the Peirce Mansion is open to the public for quarterly open house events and is available to rent. The mansion provides a one-of-a-kind venue for weddings, receptions, graduations, corporate gatherings, family reunions, private parties or photo shoots!
