Two Northeast Nebraska properties deemed historic

November 29, 2018

NORFOLK - Two Northeast Nebraska locations have been added to the National Register of Historic Places.

Dave Calease is the National Register Coordinator and says one is the Dommer-Haase Farmstead, located at 2400 West Eisenhower Avenue in Norfolk.

Calease says the architecture stands out on this property.

“It’s constructed of concrete block, which in the earlier 20th century was a new type of construction material and a big deal in the Norfolk area. It was a neat and cheap way for a concrete house to be built.”

Calease says also added to the list is the Stanton Carnegie Library.

He says it was originally constructed in 1915 and has served as Stanton’s public library ever since, and it’s one of 69 libraries in Nebraska that were built using a grant from Andrew Carnegie.
