Since pre-historic times, the path along the Platte River through Nebraska, once called the Great Platte River Road, has been a thoroughfare for adventurers traveling across the continent. From the Oregon Trail era to toady, the Archway’s historical exhibit brings the story of the Great Platte River Road to life. Make the Archway part of your group’s travel adventure.
The Archway is happy to arrange catering for groups of 10 or more. We work with the best restaurants and caterers in central Nebraska to provide your group with a high-quality meal with no hassle for you. No waiting in line for fast food or wondering if a restaurant can accommodate your group’s needs. The Archway’s event room can accommodate up to 150 people. Call or email Stacy Schwartz, (308.237.1000) for more information.
