Bowring Ranch is a historical museum about Arthur and Eva Bowring, who both served in the U.S. House of Representatives. This working ranch lies in a sandhills valley rich in Nebraska history. A newly constructed visitors center houses artifacts and memorabilia of early day ranching and the Bowring's political careers. The ranch is open for tours of the original Bowring home which is filled with antique china and glassware. A visit to the furnished sod house dating back to the 1800s is a step back in time.
Hours: Owned and operated by the Nebraska State Parks and Game Commission, the tours begin in May and close September 1.
Address: 30 miles east of Gordon, just north of Merriman.
