Stories From Nebraska's Agricultural History
Lamp honors Nebraska’s agricultural history with stories of the spaces, places, inventions, commodities, events, and people that made Nebraska one of the top agricultural states in the nation and gave rise to such slogans as “The Beef State” and “The Cornhusker State.” Lamp will enlighten and entertain with important and little know stories about the role of water in the development of western Nebraska, the digging of our irrigation ditches and canals, and our state’s unique governance by local Natural Resource District boards.
