Richardson County Courthouse Open House to commemorate the 150th Year of Nebraska Statehood
March 1, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The Richardson County Officials met and decided that we needed to plan an event to commemorate the historic day, March 1, 2017,
as the 150th year of Nebraska Statehood here in Richardson County. As we are all so busy with our duties as county officials, we thought that something simple like an open house would be the best thing for us all. We have invited the 4th grade classes from the local schools in the county to join us and give their presentations on Nebraska History to those in attendance, 2 schools have agreed. We will also be having VIPs from the past, William Richardson, the third territorial governor of Nebraska whom our County was named after and J. Sterling Morton and are trying to get some of our indian tribal members to participate with being present in their tribal clothing. Refreshments will be provided, serving Nebraska shaped cookies and the favorite drink of Nebraska–Kool-aid.
