About This Destination

Riverside Park - The memorial was built in tribute to the race horse, Shade-On, whose success put Neligh on the map in the early 1900s. The original horse barn and race track were located near the site where the memorial stands. A swinging bridge built in the 1930s crosses the Elkhorn River and remains a local landmark. Walking paths to Neligh Mills and the Cowboy Trail also are located here.
