Educate, Honor and Empower

The Interpretive Center


Siouxland Freedom Park President, Mike Newhouse, talks about the vision of the Interpretive Center.

Retired South Sioux City High School teacher, Steve Shadle, also speaks of a program he founded at the high school which will be incorporated at the Interpretive Center.

One day the 5,000 square foot Interpretive Center will be home to interactive displays, memorabilia and exhibits from all conflicts of war where United States soldiers fought for our freedom.

The goal of the Interpretive Center is to educate and empower visitors while paying tribute to those who have served.

Nearly $400,000 is needed for the inside construction of the Interpretive Center.  So far, about $250,000 has been raised by private donations, event fundraisers and grants.

Once the construction is complete on the inside, approximately $250,000 will be needed to work with Bluewater Studio on planning, designing and building the exhibits.
