Fort Kearney State Historic Park

. Description:  Erected in 1848 to replace an earlier fort, it guarded the Oregon Trail during the Gold Rush era, became a stagecoach and freight caravan stop and a Pony Express home station, and ultimately provided protection for Union Pacific Railroad construction crews.  It was abandoned and dismantled in 1871.  Recent archaeological exploration has led to development of an interpretive center, blacksmith-carpenter shop, and construction a stockade around the parade ground.
