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.

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.

Fascinating collection of buildings & antiques. Our 4 yr old grandson was totally part of the old west as he played with the children of volunteers. The jail was his favorite. The volunteers were very knowledgable & helpful.
