Highlights 2-Day Event Northplatte
Activities began with a private group tour of the famous Golden Spike Tower at the Bailey Rail Yards in North Platte. The tour was followed by a very special reception and dinner at Buffalo Bill’s Ranch. The dinner was a great way for supporters of Nebraska 150 from across the state to join together in this important initiative.
Communities across the state will be planning major events for the sesquicentennial celebration and we will keep a complete calendar for easy reference.
Board of Directors
Meet the members of the Board of Directors and Friends of the Nebraska 150 Sesquicentennial who have been coordinating the planning for this event since 2012.
