Archway

At the Archway, you can walk with the pioneers over the Oregon Trail. Watch a rider make a quick stop to switch horses at a Pony Express Station. Hear Mark Twain’s account of a cross-country stage coach trip.  Relive the building of the transcontinental railroad and visit a travelers’ campground to hear stories of life on “America’s Main Street,” the Lincoln Highway.  All this history, and more, happened right here on the path along the Platte River in Nebraska, and the Archway’s family-friendly exhibit brings our rich history to life.

Spend as little as an hour or all afternoon at the Archway.  Take our historical tour, browse for gifts in our shop, visit the fish pond, and stroll on our hike/bike trail.  The Archway is a tribute to the adventurers who traveled through Nebraska in the past and an inspiration to the adventurers of today.  Make the Archway part of your travel adventure.
