The Day Trip Of A Lifetime You Can Only Take In Nebraska

When we think of Nebraska’s early days, we don’t always consider just how diverse the population was. In 1874, a group of 35 Mennonite families from the Molotshna Colony in Russia settled in the Henderson area in York County. Their early life in Nebraska is now commemorated at the Henderson Mennonite Heritage Park.

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/

Admission to the park is $5 per person, and their normal season is Memorial Day to Labor Day. Find the park at 720 Rd B, 1 1/2 mi. south of I-80 Exit 342. Learn more on the Park’s website or Facebook page.
