Properties added to National Register of Historic Places
Two Northeast Nebraska properties have been listed on the National Register of Historic Places, History Nebraska representatives announced Tuesday morning.
One is the Dommer-Haase Farmstead, located at 2400 W. Eisenhower Ave., near Norfolk, that includes a rock-faced concrete block farmhouse that was built in the early 20th century and four outbuildings. The property was originally homesteaded by Wilhelm Dommer.
Also new to the list is the Stanton Carnegie Library. Located at 1009 Jackpine St., it was originally constructed in 1915 and has served as Stanton’s public library ever since. It is one of 69 libraries in Nebraska that were built using a grant from Andrew Carnegie.
The National Register of Historic Places is the nation’s inventory of properties deemed worthy of preservation. In addition to the two area sites, three others in Plattsmouth, Arlington and Cozad are new additions to the register.
