A Mansion Was Built And Left To Decay In The Middle Of This Nebraska Field
Of all the abandoned places in Nebraska, this mansion may just be the most beautiful…and one of the saddest. It was built for a family in 1874-1875 and remained in that family for more than a century. Unfortunately, it’s now just a decaying shell of its former glory.
The grandeur of the Israel Beetison mansion will live on, even as time and nature take their toll on the building. Please note that the home is on private property and not accessible to the public. You can, however, see it from your car if you travel north on Highway 66 from the I-80 Ashland exit.
