History at High Noon: Sioux City’s First Banker
12:05 p.m. at the Sioux City Public Museum
Presenter Haley Aguirre, Archival Records Clerk, will explore the story of George Weare and his bank, and how the Weare family impacted Sioux City high society from the Victorian era and beyond. George Weare started the city’s first banking house in 1855 with a tin box for a safe and a dry goods crate for a desk. From such humble beginnings Weare’s firm grew into one of the most successful and longest-lasting banks in Sioux City history. He was also an influential member of Sioux City society and government, serving on the first city council and as one of our early mayors. Attendees are invited to bring their lunches to this free photographic presentation. Free.
