SIBLEY, Iowa (AP) - The highest point in Iowa will be celebrated later this week.

The Sioux City Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1fgNZC2 ) members of the Highpointers Club will gather at Hawkeye Point for a convention that starts on Thursday and runs through Saturday.

The highest point in the state is 1,670 feet above sea level, and it is about 4 miles north of the town of Sibley, Iowa.

The Highpointers Club works to mark the highest point in every state.

Seven years ago, the Merrill and Donna Sterler family donated 1.6 acres to Osceola County to mark the high point and preserve public access.

On a clear day, the site offers views of Iowa, Minnesota and perhaps South Dakota.
