September 1, 2007 - Stuhr Museum, Part 1

In 2002 we only had a few hours at the Stuhr Museum.  This time we had a day.

The main museum had an exhibit of the early days of Grand Island including how it was settled by whites.  Very interesting.

They also celebrate the native peoples at the museum.  Here is a teepee:
