HARRISON — The 35th annual Sioux County Historical Trek is scheduled this year for Saturday, Sept. 8. The Historical Trek tours various parts of Sioux County and the surrounding area, exploring local sites and history.

This year’s trek will travel through east central Sioux County, visiting the historic communities of Belmont and Marsland.

The group will also tour the Belmont Tunnel, Nebraska’s only railroad tunnel, which is no longer in use.

After leaving Marsland, the group will drive to Box Butte Reservoir for a picnic lunch. On the way back to Harrison via Crawford, they’ll stop for ice cream along the way.

Travel is by bus and the cost is $30 per person. Plan to meet at the Sioux County Museum in Harrison at 7:45 a.m. for registration, coffee and doughnuts. Bottled water will be provided, but participants should bring a sack lunch.

To register, call the Sioux County Museum no later than Aug. 31, at 308-668-2110 or 308-665-5175.
