Gage County is where America’s homestead story begins. In the 19th Century, America was on the move and many pioneers traveled through this area. Over 300,000 persons traveled the Oregon Trail which enters Nebraska near Lanham. Millions of American’s also homesteaded. One of the first homestead claims is preserved at Homestead National Monument of America just 4 miles west of Beatrice.
