Stuhr Museum's Railroad Town has been named the "Best Preserved Pioneer Town - Re-Created" for 2018 by True West Magazine!
This is the second time Railroad Town, Stuhr's 1890s Living History Community, has won this recognition from True West, whose readership stretches across the country. From their announcement:
"This award is a testament to the hard work and tenacity it takes to be "The Best" in your field and it is recognized by people who love the West as much as you do. On behalf of the staff of True West Magazine, we salute you for representing, preserving and celebrating the American West."
Railroad Town at Stuhr Museum contains historic homes and businesses recreated to represent the first communities founded in Nebraska. The town is "open" from May 1 - Labor Day annually where it is staffed by costumed interpreters. Railroad Town is also the site of many events throughout the year including Memorial Day, the 4th of July and the recently completed Christmas Past & Present.
Stuhr is proud to receive this recognition and works hard throughout the year to maintain, preserve and continue the growth of our Living History community. For more information on the award visit www.stuhrmuseum.org or call the museum at (308) 385-5316.
