We stopped and looked around the town. It was interesting and varied. Lots of work has gone into making the different stores. There is a geocache here that was very informative on the history of the buildings. The kids had fun finding the geocache trail....More

And the people who take care of Dobby's are volunteers who love history - from what I saw, they go a good job of preserving the 26 or 27 buildings on the site.

This place should be rated number 1 in Alliance area. From kids to grandparents, you'll love it AND learn a lot! Cannot recommend it highly enough. And its free (donations to the 501c3 requested). Just do it‼️

This was so close in proximity to Carhenge, that was simply too easy not to pass up. A great little town that gives a little insight into the people of the area.

Lot of history in an early homesteaders setting. Great tours in the summer. Well worth the stop. Lot of old buildings restored. With helpful guides to explain what it was like to live 140 years ago on the plains of Nebraska.
