No matter where I travel I’m always searching out the local historical society or museum. The Gothenburg Historical Society (Nebraska) purchased this building (a former church) in 2005 and it houses their collection of local history. The town has Swedish and German roots with a strong farming component. They also have displays centered on the Native American culture of the Plains Indians including the Lakota and Cheyenne tribes.
Since its founding in 1882, the town has thrived in agriculture and industry. The population is approximately 3500.
You’ll find many similarities of displays between our two historical societies. The docents were welcoming and informative…just like ours! Enjoy the photos.
