Personal memories from the collections of the Nebraska State Historical Society.
We all want to preserve the memories we treasure. These can be of family, friends, special moments, or other important events. We also hope that others remember us -- our friendship and the difference that we made in their lives.
We hope our memories are strong enough to endure the test of time, but it helps to have physical reminders, visual and tactile representations of that specific past we want to recall. It doesn't take much to jump-start a memory.
These objects of memory from the collections of the Nebraska State Historical Society are some of the many kinds of physical reminders that we fashion to preserve memories.
