I

f you could see Nebraska through my eyes, you'd see the history that we all share. You'd see the daring and determination of the pioneers who first traveled the Oregon Trail along the Platte River through Nebraska. You'd see the high spirited adventure of prospectors racing along the trail during the California Gold Rush, and the devotion of Mormons who followed the same path in search of religious freedom. You'd see the entrepreneurial spirit that lead to the creation of the Pony Express, the industry that built the Transcontinental Railroad and the cross-country cooperation that lead to the creation of “America’s Main Street,” the Lincoln Highway. You'd see people of vision and courage who, throughout our history, travelled this same path through Nebraska and found ways to work together to make their dreams come true. And you'd see their contributions to a bigger dream, the building of America.

My name is My name is Christine and this is Archway through my eyes.
