Most People Have No Idea This Island In Nebraska Even Exists

Have you ever heard the weird tale of McKissick Island? If you’re like most people in Nebraska, the name won’t ring a bell – and there’s probably a good reason for that. You see, McKissick Island isn’t physically in Nebraska. It’s not even an island. In fact, you have to go through Iowa and Missouri to get to it by land, even though it’s legally part of Nemaha County.

After learning about this bizarre little piece of Nebraska history, I had to go see it for myself. So I packed up the family and we headed down to take a look at this Nebraska island that isn’t in Nebraska and isn’t really an island.

Were you surprised to learn about Nebraska’s very weird island?
