About this title

Synopsis:

When Lewis and Clark pulled their way up the Missouri River in the summer of 1804, their journals reported an area of boundless prairie and beautiful streams on the river’s west bank. Fifty years later, the community of Nebraska City was born on that very spot. For many decades, the community served as a jumping-off point for travelers bound farther westward as thousands of wagon trains departed every year. By the late 1800s, the city became known for another reason: the home of Arbor Day. First introduced by Nebraska City resident J. Sterling Morton in 1872, Arbor Day became Nebraska’s holiday and is now celebrated worldwide. The 1900s saw a decline in the transportation industry but a rise in manufacturing and the growing and canning of produce. Today, historical tourism makes up the economic lifeblood of this small but thriving community.

About the Author:

Nebraska City native, author, and artist Tammy Partsch combines her love of the past and photography with this pictorial history of her hometown. The photographs and text included were culled from Nebraska City’s various museums and feature images never before published in such a public format. In addition to writing, Partsch teaches art at a local private school and volunteers for many community organizations.
