    The entrance to Western Sand & Gravel's Louisville Plant. A little south of Hwy 31 and across the Platte River from Platte River State Park - just visible in the distance.

    This is a sister (or maybe a brother) company to Western Sand & Gravel. Take 50.

    This church is located in a town founded by Captain Hoover, though it is not named in his honor. It's located in an area originally settled by the Otoe tribe.

    "CAPT. JOHN T. A. HOOVER, well known as the founder of Louisville, Cass County, has by that fact alone, independent of his well-known character for energy and enterprise, made himself a man of much consequence along the northern line of Cass County. His sagacity and forethought made this point, in his judgment, a good one for future operations, and after persuading the Burlington & Missouri River Railroad Company to lay their track as near as possible to the projected site of the village, contributed $500 for the location of a station there. He put up the first house in the place, and the town has since been the object of his fostering care." - Biographical Album of Otoe and Cass Counties Nebraska

    Built in the late 1800s, this schoolhouse stood for decades as the Cunningham School, seven miles north of Valparaiso, Neb., before a fire severely damaged it in the 1930s. It was rebuilt to its original specs and character, and has not changed much since. The building was brought to State Fair Park in the mid-1970s. In 2009, after the university acquired the land that would become Nebraska Innovation Campus, the schoolhouse was moved to its present location.

    It is the Heritage School used My Lincoln Public Schools. I have it from a good source that the resident Schoolmarm is Mary Lou.

    This 150-acre site is bordered on the west by little Salt Creek and on the south by Salt Creek, and is named after a little bird. It's the largest and latest of several saline wetland restoration projects by the NRD within the corporate limits of Lincoln. To access it requires about two miles of unpaved road.

    Rumor has it that some dirty and racy events happen here on Friday nights. Good BBQ about 3 miles north of here.

    Know exactly where it is since I used to drive in circles there. Just no time to get there lately...

    Gates were open today. Hot laps and cold beer on Friday night. What could be better. Well how about a two night binge. Well get of the interstate, go 12.5 miles south and repeat on Saturday night.
