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.

Have you ever seen the Thompson scalp in person? Would you ever think about making an appointment for your own private showing?
