You Won’t Believe The Bizarre Piece Of History Hiding In A Nebraska Library
As you might expect from Nebraska’s rich (and sometimes unusual) history, there are a lot of stories out there that most people haven’t heard. Such is the case with William Thompson’s scalp. When it was attached to William Thompson, it was as unremarkable as scalps tend to be. But after it left Thompson’s body, it took on a life of its own.
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/
Have you ever seen the Thompson scalp in person? Would you ever think about making an appointment for your own private showing?
