HISTORICAL NOTE



In 1915 a group of families led by Rev. J.F. Grove decided to withdraw from the Zion Congregational Church and form a fourth German Congregational Church in the newly developing area of southwest Lincoln. The new church was named the German Ebenezer Evangelical Congregational Church and was accepted into the Nebraska Congregational Conference. A building was constructed on the southeast corner of 8th and B Streets. All services and activities were conducted in the German language until English was introduced in the 1930s. Not until the 1950s was the use of German eliminated completely.

About History Nebraska
History Nebraska was founded in 1878 as the Nebraska State Historical Society by citizens who recognized Nebraska was going through great changes and they sought to record the stories of both indigenous and immigrant peoples. It was designated a state institution and began receiving funds from the legislature in 1883. Legislation in 1994 changed History Nebraska from a state institution to a state agency. The division is headed by Interim Director and CEO Jill Dolberg. They are assisted by an administrative staff responsible for financial and personnel functions, museum store services, security, and facilities maintenance for History Nebraska.
