Historic Anniversary at the Archway

August 25 – 5:30pm – Historic Anniversary at the Archway

Join 1848 Venture Crew Civil War reenactors in observing the 107th anniversary of the Fort Kearney National Park Association re-union, during which association officials marked the south channel of the Platte River near Fort Kearny so that everyone would remember the history of the place where the trails westward crossed the river.  The contours of the river have changed and the marker was moved from its original site.  But you can still see the trail marker on display, today, at the Archway.
