Virtually Tour the Willa Cather Historic Sites

Tour Virtually While Planning a Future Visit to Red Cloud, Nebraska!


Our virtual tour gives students, teachers, and guests a content-rich, interactive way to experience Willa Cather’s Red Cloud—from around the state or the world! Featuring historic photos, audio and video scenes from Cather’s work, and interviews with noted Cather scholars, the Virtual Tour walks visitors through four of Red Cloud’s most important Cather sites and places these sites in context with Cather’s fiction.

Join us for guided video tours of our Wila Cather Historic Sites with Education Coordinator Rachel Olsen, by clicking on the videos and site links below. These videos will be uploaded weekly, and will remain here on our website for those who might have limited mobility or are unable to visit Red Cloud in the future.

Launched during the spring 2020 COVID-19 shut-down, Rachel comments on the project:

"The push to create digital content and virtual experiences seemed a little scary at first but it has actually been invigorating. I miss interacting with visitors in person, but filming the sites has prompted me to look at touring in new ways. It is also exciting to consider how the addition of virtual elements such as online art galleries will enhance the NWCC's accessibility for those who cannot travel or have different sensory needs. Although these developments were born out of unforseen necessity, over time our new digital resources will help us better accomplish our mission to preserve Cather's legacy."
