Nebraska is also known as the Cornhusker State, after a nickname given to the University of Nebraska athletics team. The term 'cornhuskers' comes from the method of harvesting corn by hand, which was common in Nebraska before the invention of husking machinery.

The state capital of Nebraska is Lincoln.

Harold Warp Pioneer Village:
Testament to 150 years of American change, the Pioneer Village complex in Minden is comprised of 28 buildings on 20 acres housing over 50,000 irreplaceable items of historical value; restored to operating order and arranged in the chronological order of their development. Historic buildings, a Frontier Fort, Pony Express Station, Iron Horse, and a home made of sod are some of the items to discover.

Omaha

The largest city in Nebraska is named after the Omaha people. The community developed as a supplies depot for overland wagon trains heading west, and prospered even more when it became a terminus on the Union Pacific Railroad.
