Author, photographer, and Humanities Nebraska speaker Jeff Barnes shares the images and stories of Nebraska’s lesser known historical monuments, placed far off the beaten path. This is our state’s “hidden history,” with long-forgotten stories and rarely seen landscapes, such as the impact of glaciers on our community monuments, or how Nebraska’s first marker nearly went to the bottom of the Missouri and – once placed at its permanent site – still disappeared for fifty years. Wherever possible, markers of the host’s community are also featured.
Jeff Barnes is a fifth-generation Nebraskan, past chairman of the Nebraska Hall of Fame Commission, and former marketing director for the Durham Western Heritage Museum. His goal in writing is to “get people off the Interstate, and to get them to go where history happened.”
