Old Freighter’s Museum
407 North 14th St., Nebraska City, NE
The Old Freighter’s Museum preserves Nebraska City’s legacy of transporting goods during the settling of the West from 1846 to 1870. The museum’s wood-frame building was erected by the government in 1858 and was originally the home of the area’s quartermaster. A year later it became the home of Russell, Majors and Waddell, a freighting company tasked with supplying the western-most military outposts.
