Lincoln County Historical Museum, North Platte, Nebraska

A small museum.  We saw a couple of new items there that we had not seen in other museums.  North Platte is known as the Canteen town so there is a display about how the people in North Platte set up Canteens to feed our military returning or entering the war.  Lots to see, but not very well organized.

P1330020 This is an 1899 Sears and Roebuck catalog house owned by the Fredricksens.  The wallpaper, furnishings, and outbuildings are original.  Can you imagine ordering your home from Sears and Roebuck and then putting it together?

P1320989 projector used in early movie theater.

P1330013 two story log house.
