    Kearney Things to Do

    This is a recreation of a traditional Pawnee Earth Lodge. The thing I found most interesting about it was that it was not built by Pawnee Indians but by members of the Mandan, Hidatsa, and and Arikara tribes. The Pawnee are believed to have built their last traditional lodge in 1905 and have lost the knowledge of how they were built. Losing vital...

    Okay the place specializes in steaks so maybe they do those well. The decor inside and out was nothing special.

The newer side of town is across the railroad tracks closer to I-80. Most of the older architecture downtown is from the early 20th century. There's an art...

    Scottsbluff Local Customs

    Western Nebraska is a pretty rural place and as such people here tend to be friendly and informal. Don't be surprised when people give you a little wave when driving past you in the opposite direction. No, they don't necessarilly think they know you, that's just a common courtesy here. Some variations are the "one finger wave" (no, not that one!)...

Fort Robinson State Park

  • Basaic's Profile Photo

    History and a Neat Museum

    by Basaic Written Oct 22, 2013

    Favorite thing: Fort Robinson State Park is considered by many to be the premier park in Western Nebraska. It is named for Fort Robinson a former U.S. Army Post but has much more than the fort to attract tourists. Fort Robinson was in service during the Indian Wars and was the site of the Cheyenne Outbreak in 1879. It was here that the great Sioux War Chief Crazy Horse died. The camp was active until after WW2. In addition to the fort there is a fine museum here with great displays of a huge mastodon, other fossils and bones and the history of the area. There are cabins for rent, campsites, and most any recreational activity you can think of, along with 22,000 beautiful acres to explore.

    Fondest memory: The history of the fort, the beauty of the area, and the interesting geological and paleontological displays in the museum.
