20 Abandoned Places in Nebraska That Nature is Reclaiming
Nebraska has more than its share of abandoned buildings. As people have moved away from their family farms and into towns and cities, plenty of buildings, barns, farmhouses, and even farm equipment have simply been left to rot away. These abandoned places are slowly being taken over and consumed by nature long after the humans moved away and forgot about them.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
Many of these structures have since been razed or otherwise destroyed; others stand exactly as they were when their photographs were taken. We’d like to hope that at least some of them were rescued by people who loved them and restored them to their former functionality.
