Morningside area, Sioux City

Morningside is the blanket term for the hilly southeast quadrant of Sioux City.  Morningside is somewhat demarcated by old U.S. Highway 75(at South Lewis Blvd) at the western end and old U.S. Highway 20(at Gordan Drive) on the northern end.

It was originally a streetcar suburb in the late 19th century.  Morningside was originally promoted by the entrepreneur and settler Edwin Peters, who made this home near the original commercial center of the suburb, known as "Peters park".  Peters Park was also the location of the fine Victorian home of Arthur Garretson, which was situated at the eastern terminus of the Sioux City Elevated Railway.  For many years, the elegant Garretson mansion served as the Morningside Public Library.  However, in the 1960s it was razed amidst much controversy, and replaced by a modern structure.  Peters Park is also home to Morningside College, founded in 1894.

Today Morningside is a large sprawling area of Sioux City containing numerous distinctive neighborhoods.  As a whole, Morningside is a mix of older residential neighborhoods and commercial corridors.  Peters Park is the historical commercial center of Morningside, although a boom of commercial development in the Southern Hills area over the past 20 years has dwarfed Peters Park's own commercial area.
