The National Trust for Historic Preservation has issued an urgent request for individuals and communities to contact our local, state and federal representatives, and encourage them to keep the federal historic tax credit. The new tax overhaul currently going through the federal government would eliminate the historic tax credit, which "has played a critical role in revitalizing small towns and cities, creating jobs, and increasing economic activity, all while returning more tax revenue to the Treasury than it costs," (National Trust for Historic Preservation, 2017).
Please click the link below to learn more about the importance of the historic tax credit, and what you can do to help save it from being eliminated.

"At the time it was platted in 1854 Sioux City was rapidly becoming a gateway to the west by way of river, rail and roads. It was a time of speculation, great economic development and for people to discover their passion for adventure. An early settlement immediately west of what we now consider downtown and a monument situated there represent these times," (Siouxland Magazine, Fall 2015).
