    This marker is located at the corner of Hwy 77 and Hickman Rd (Spur 55G) a few miles south of Lincoln.

    This cemetery in Saunders County is just south of the intersection of two highways, a block or two off the highway, but is hidden from view behind the cornstalks. It will be revealed within a week or two after the corn is harvested. There are a couple of letters missing from the title on the entrance arch - it should read "NARODNI HRBITOV"

    Ooh, been there. It's a Czech National Cemetery, if I recall.

    This is an impressive rural church, alongside a church school that is still quite active. If you look closely above the motorcycle seat, you can read the year on the church cornerstone. There's also a cemetery nearby whose sign bears the phrase "God's Acre". If I'm remembering correctly, the origin of this term comes from the German word Gottesacker which translates to "Field of God". This church serves a nearby community that bears the same name as a famous National Cemetery (in a way, tying this tag to the previous one).

    St. Paul's Lutheran Church & School - about 4 miles north of Arlington, NE. I wonder if it's a sin to park in the No Parking zone?

    This village's name honors an important Pawnee chief, Petalesharo, who lived in the area during the 19th century. It looks like Miss Kitty and Marshal Dillon have moved on.
