Event comments

Today, Nebraska City is better known as the birthplace of Arbor Day, the passion of J. Sterling Morton (father to the J. Morton of Morton Salt fame). The elder Morton served many roles in local government and was Grover Cleveland's Secretary of Agriculture. His home at Arbor Lodge and its surround farms are part of this walk. Of course, this walk takes place on tree-lined streets rising from the Missouri River floodplain. Look for the many tree sculptures around the city and evidence of a vibrant arts culture and rich historical past.
