Historian and author Jeff Barnes presents “Nebraska’s Landmark Buildings” on Tuesday, March 13, at 6:30 p.m. The talk is sponsored by Humanities Nebraska and is free to the public.
The 45-minute talk presents the diversity of the state’s buildings, from an 1830s-era cabin along to its internationally noted state capitol through a state-of-the-art cancer center of today. “The architecture of Nebraska tells the history of the state,” said Barnes. “You can see the boom-and-bust periods, the arrival of various ethnic groups, and the impact of world wars.”
The talk is derived from Barnes’ new book, 150@150: Nebraska’s Landmark Buildings at the State’s Sesquicentennial, a celebration of the built world of Nebraska in its 150th anniversary of statehood. This colorful, richly photographed collection includes the earliest buildings constructed by newcomers to the territory, its most recognizable landmarks, and the newest and most dynamic structures designed by the architectural firms of today.
