Nebraska History Magazine

Nebraska History Spring 2017 cover

Nebraska History is a quarterly, illustrated magazine that explores Nebraska's history and culture through original articles and historical images from our extensive collections.

Each story features new research or newly-published historical materials; each is reviewed by qualified scholars before publication. The magazine also features book reviews and our popular "P.S." — an image we've uncovered that has its own story to tell.
