1. The old Swift Packing house demolition. Known in recent years as "K.D.Station", the building and giant smokestack,  visible when driving across Gordon viaduct, was razed in the Fall of 2009, and the smokestack came down on April 11, 2010. This video of the smokestack coming down was filmed from the old Floyd River channel.

2. This video was produced in 1981, but most of you will recognize the "infamous" part of Sioux City History
