Jensen Memorial Library- Marking Nebraska

May 30 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Marking Nebraska: Our (Mostly) Hidden Historical Monuments is a review of the state’s earliest historical markers, from setting its borders to marking its trails to honoring its people. Drawing from his site visits and photographs collected from across the state, Nebraska author Jeff Barnes shares some of the more interesting, colorful, and even controversial ways Nebraskans told their stories through boulders, tablets, plaques, and statues.
The presentation is in conjunction with Barnes’s book, Cut in Stone, Cast in Bronze: Nebraska’s Historical Markers and Monuments, winner of the Nebraska Book Award for nonfiction. Sponsored by the Nebraska State Historical Society Foundation, the book is a full-color, comprehensive guide to the nearly 300 monuments, statues, markers, and plaques erected and placed across the state from Territorihood to the 1967 Centennial in commemoration of historical events, places, and people. In addition to the photographs of the markers and the history behind them, Barnes has included the locations and GPS coordinates for site visits
