A Lesser-Known Side Of Nebraska History Is On Display At The Sandhills Heritage Museum

One of the best qualities Nebraskans possess is our willingness to help one another. It was an absolute necessity in the state’s early days when settlers realized that a huge portion of the state, now known as the Sandhills, was incapable of supporting crops. Over the years the Sandhills region has become cattle country, thanks to the ranchers and families who helped one another succeed. That legacy is on display at the Sandhills Heritage Museum, a place that strives to keep alive the spirit and history of this unique area.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

The museum is typically open weekends during the summer only. For more information about hours, exhibits, and future events, check out the museum’s Facebook page.

If you want to really get to know the Sandhills, there’s no better way than traveling the region yourself – take a look at our previous article on the Sandhills Journey Scenic Byway.
