Homesteaders

“The Covered Wagon of the Great Western Migration. 1886 in Loup Valley, Nebraska.” A family poses with the wagon in which they live and travel daily during their pursuit of a homestead.

This collection represents 187 biographical sketches of Nebraska’s important early residents. It comes from a book down before the turn of the 19th century into the 20th century… a time when Nebraska as a state was just leaving it’s teen-age years and becoming an “state” into the nation of United States. Many of the sketches within this volume were about farming men… they were the staple of settlers who homesteaded Nebraska’s lands… but they also represent the more professional fields of men… doctors, judges, lawyers, and teachers.

Our current presentation includes three counties: Antelope, Boone, and Burt.
