Union Pacific Railroad: The Great National Highway Between the Mountain and the East – The Direct Route to Colorado, Utah, Idaho, Montana, Nevada and California – Open from Omaha to Julesberg – 1867

If you like early Nebraska Territory history or early railroad history you will love this little booklet from the Union Pacific Railroad from 1867. In it are the detailed plans of the Union Pacific to run their rail lines from Omaha to the West.

It’s a quick read (23 pages) with a really nice map and a few notes. A lengthy advertisement for the “opening of Nebraska” to the West and Nebraska’s low cost of living and cheap lands.

Sunken Gardens – Lincoln

The history of the Sunken Gardens in Lincoln is a bit unique. It began as a Lincoln trash dump and the citizens of Lincoln worked to turn it into a beautiful garden oasis in 1930.
