About This Destination

The Pavelka Farmstead and the fruit cave described in My Antonia, from which the children emerged in a burst of light and life, is located just south of Highway 4 near Bladen. Restored and managed by the Willa Cather Foundation and maintained by the Nebraska State Historical Society, the Pavelka Farmstead was chosen as one of twelve Hidden Treasures in Nebraska by Heritage Nebraska in 2010 and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
