Nebraska City - Arbor Lodge State Historical Park

2600 Arbor Avenue

This beautiful estate in Nebraska City was home to J. Sterling Morton, founder of Arbor Day. From its beginning in 1855 as a four-room frame house, the magnificent mansion grew to 52 rooms through several remodelings. Authentic furnishings grace the rooms, and displays capture the life and times of this exceptional man.

One of the most beautiful homes from the 1800's. Loved this place as a child and even 40 years later it is still an amazing place to visit. A beautiful place to just spend the day walking around and relaxing. The staff is amazing and the period correct attire makes it all that more enjoyable.

Beautiful grounds. Refreshing! While on your visit, take the time to tour the Mansion. Walk the trails and take it all in. Its very rich in history and beauty. Staff is beyond friendly, knowledgeable and are very willing to answer any questions that may arise. A definite must see in Nebraska City. It will not disappoint.
