Join Us in Keeping Nebraska History Alive.

At the Nebraska State Historical Society Foundation, we support the preservation, interpretation, and appreciation of Nebraska history. As a 501(c)(3) organization, we work directly with donors on their funding priorities in support of countless Nebraska State Historical Society (NSHS) programs, projects, and events. The Nebraska State Historical Society Foundation is especially grateful to those who have contributed to the NSHS through the Foundation throughout our seventy-two year history.

Board of Trustees' Annual Meeting in Kearney


"Echoes of an Era" Musical Living History Program in Kearney, May 2nd 

Paul Siebert will present "Echoes of an Era" on Saturday, May 2nd, 2015 at 9:00 a.m. at the Kearney Public Library, 2020 1st Avenue. This presentation is sponsored by the Nebraska State Historical Society Foundation in partnership with Humanities Nebraska and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment. "Echoes of an Era" tells the story of one family's journey from Russia to Nebraska in the 1870s. Using original and period music with up to 7 different acoustic instruments, storytelling, personal family history, period costumes, and extensive knowledge on the subject of blacksmithing/metallurgy, "Echoes of an Era" is a not-to-be-missed interactive family-centered edutainment experience!

Visit History at the Cattlemen’s Ball
For years, you have read the rich stories of Nebraska's cattle industry in the pages of Nebraska Cattlemen. This year, the Nebraska State Historical Society Foundation and the Nebraska State Historical Society will have a General Store Booth at the Cattlemen's Ball in Lynch where you can find out how to be a part of that grand saga. Drop by. Talk with a historian about resources available to you and maybe share the story of your family or your operation. We hope to see you there!
