  • Rich in history. Germans from Russia that immigrated here to Lincoln. They have artifacts, instruments and a blacksmith shop, a church. Even a store, & outbuildings. Quite unique. My ancestors are from Prussia so I may be a little bias.
  • OK, who even knew that "Germans From Russia" was even a Thing?? Much less that they even have their own museum?! Well, if my own grandfather had not actually been one, and a homesteading immigrant to boot, I would be included among the vast number of ignoranti myself. Stop in and give this delightful little tribute to an obscure but interesting historical niche a visit and then head down to Beatrice to the Homestead Monument for broader context.
