BACKGROUND NOTE



The Second Congregational Church of Plymouth, Nebraska, was organized on April 10, 1894. It was so named because the nearby Congregational Church of Plymouth was located only three miles south of the Village. In the same year, the congregation erected a church building at a cost of $1,208.00 which was dedicated on August 19, 1894. J.B. Doolittle served as first pastor. In 1905 the dwindling congregation deeded the church building to the Methodist Episcopal Church of Plymouth and the members were issued letters of dismissal.

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.
