There’s No Other Historical Landmark In Nebraska Quite Like This 375-Year-Old Tree
Nebraska itself has only been a state for just over 150 years, but eons of history took place right here before our ancestors ever staked their claims. This magnificent old tree in what is now Ponca State Park is one of the oldest in Nebraska, and it has seen 375 years of history unfolding before it.
Visit Ponca State Park four miles north of the town of Ponca at 88090 Spur 26 E, Ponca, NE 68770. It’s open 24 hours a day and a park permit is required to enter. Various camping and recreational areas are available on the grounds; go here for more information.
