The Nebraska Territory officially became the 37-th state in 1867. You might find it hard to believe but they once actually referred to Nebraska as being part of the “Great American Desert”!
This is because in 1820, Major Stephen H. Long considered the area to not be fit for human habitation (though his words were even a bit harsher).
This is due to the fact that the area at the time was hot, dry, rather flat, and home to few trees. The area is not a desert, but does resemble it in some places. It can get very hot and can have severe blizzards. But it is also beautiful with a lot of natural wonders to see, if you’re into that.
Of course times changes and we now refer to the area as the Great Plains. This region stretches from inside Canada down to almost Mexico and includes part of ten different American states. They are North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Nebraska, Wyoming, Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Texas.
Like every state Nebraska has several interesting facts and places to see, way too many to list in here! But for example Nebraska got its name from the Oto Indian word meaning “flat water”.
