Class begins in the Stuhr Building at the wagon display that shows a family stopped for a “nooning” on the trail. The various trails through Nebraska and preparations for an overland journey in the mid-19th century will be discussed. From here the class will travel to the Log Road Ranche, where students will learn about the important role these stopover points along the trail played and what this meant for weary travelers heading both directions. Early settlement lifestyles will be discussed, and a few of the artifacts of early plains life survival demonstrated.
