These 8 Photos of Nebraska In The 1950s Are Mesmerizing

It’s always fun to take a step back in time and get a glimpse of the Nebraska of yesteryear. These photos from the 1950s show a Nebraska that many of our readers will remember. But if you weren’t around at the time, welcome to 1950s Nebraska.

Bonus: This video shows the story of Charles Starkweather and Caril Fugate, Nebraska’s serial killing teenage couple. The couple and their crime spree were a huge (and tragic) part of the 1950s in Nebraska.

The photos used to compile this video are stunning. They were all taken around the time of the killing spree in the late 1950s.
