Spanning I-80 at Exit 275, the Archway in Kearney, Nebraska, brings American history to life. Since prehistoric times, the path along the Platte River through Nebraska, once known as the Great Platte River Road, has served as a migratory route across the continent. From the Oregon Trail era to today, the Archway's family friendly exhibit tells the story of the adventurers who followed the trail and helped to build America.
In our historical exhibit, you'll walk with the pioneers over the Oregon Trail. Watch a rider switch horses at a Pony Express station. Hear Mark Twain's account of a cross-country stagecoach ride. Relive the driving of the Golden Spike that united the nation's railroads. And, visit a travelers' campground on "America's Main Street," the Lincoln Highway.
You can spend as little as an hour or a whole afternoon at the Archway. Call 877-511-ARCH for information.
