Western Wonderlands: The Burlington Railroad in the American West This curated exhibit by the Willa Cather Foundation highlights the ways that railroads—and especially the Burlington—have changed the culture of the American West. Land posters, excursion advertising, depictions of immigrant labor and African-American porter culture, and even memorabilia collections reflect the lasting influence of railroads on the lands and people of the West.

This event is free and open to the public and is funded in part by Humanities Nebraska and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment.
