Spring is here! In today’s Throwback Thursday photograph features a large group of students from McKinley School posed on the steps of Science Hall on the University of Nebraska campus in about 1910. Each student and two teachers hold bird houses they have built. McKinley School operated at 230 S. 15th Street in Lincoln from 1902-1927.
Yesterday we changed up What Is It Wednesday. This artifact is obviously a shoe, so instead we asked: what KIND of shoe? In other words, why is this random shoe a part of our collections? The answer: This is a LIGHTNING SHOE. Luella's Lightning Shoe, to be more specific.
Today we’re highlighting one of the new exhibits at the newly-renovated Nebraska History Museum.
