NEBRASKA

Nebraska is a midwestern U.S. state encompassing the prairies of the Great Plains, the towering dunes of the Sandhills and the panhandle’s dramatic rock formations. Lincoln, the capital and a vibrant university town, is distinguished by its soaring state capitol. The city of Omaha is home to the Durham Museum, which honors the state’s pioneering past in a converted railroad depot.

AUTOMOTIVE HISTORY

In 1862, when Henry Ford was only a year old, Maj. Joseph R. Brown drove his Prairie Motor off a steamboat at Nebraska City. His massive steam-driven vehicle, a kind of railroad locomotive that did not run on rails, had six-foot-high front wheels and ten-foot back wheels and was the first self-propelled road vehicle west of the Mississippi River. The first automobile in Nebraska may have been in Nebraska City when Col. W.F. Hayward bought a 1901 Locomobile steamer and a year later Lincoln had it’s first automobile.
