Sign designed and made by John Robert Faden

 

As indicated on this sign on Highway 71,  the Banner County Museum Complex is located 4 miles west on    Spur 4A.  It is well worth getting off the beaten path to see how some of our ancestors lived in the late 1890's and early 1900's. 

Located on S4A west off State Highway 71, 17 miles south of Gering, Nebraska (State Hwy. 92), 20 miles south of Scottsbluff (U.S. Hwy.26) and 25 miles north of Kimball (I-80).

Banner County now has only one unincorporated town, with minimal commercial establishments, yet the area has many claims to fame.  Harrisburg, the county seat and only town in Banner County, boasts a modern Courthouse, a modern fire department with rescue unit, complete banking facilities, two modern churches, several service industries and a most unique historical museum complex.

Where "soddies" and log houses formerly dotted almost every quarter section in the county's nearly treeless prairies, modern farmhouses and farmstead are now marked by large windbreaks in keeping with Nebraska's tradition as the "Tree Planter's State".

Come and visit our Museum Complex, our people, our hills and valleys and experience life on the Western Plains for yourself!

   

Museum Open House will be Saturday, June 14, 2014
