Mom and Brenna's conference was not as long the second day. I also had to figure out how to get a wedding gift to a friend before I could leave Lincoln. These created a bit more pressure to get on the go and find the markers on my list.
The first one I had actually decided to forego. I am not the most familiar with driving in Lincoln and didn't relish driving around in it a lot. But in my quest to get out of Lincoln I happened to drive right by Bryan LGH and spot the marker. Yay!
It is a beautiful old home!
Sooo, next on my list was Denton and once out of Lincoln I found this wonderful turn onto Denton Rd. Only problem, 1/4 mile down said road it told me the road was closed :S Arg. I decided to press on to Beatrice and try to pick up Denton on my return.
Hurray, I made it!
Drove through Wymore and stopped to take a picture of their old schoolhouse.
Next up, Barneston. Sorry, Barneston, I didn't actually come into town. I actually got to this sign quasi-illegally again. There was a new bridge being put in and they had a light to control the one lane traffic. I could see all the way across and there were no cars, I waited at the red light and I waited. Still no cars and my patience was running thin. I drove through it and found this marker right at the other end of the construction.
I had to then turn around and do it again to head back in the opposite direction to Odell. I liked the little iron stagecoach someone added at this marker.
There was a lovely extra at the turn off for Diller. It marks the Oregon Trail!!
The Diller Opera House.
Once again I did some adjusting of plans. I headed to Fairbury, the farthest out of the day. I am glad that I researched this one on google. I had to go 4 miles down a road I would have probably missed.
It was a rewarding drive. This is an amazing looking limestone house. Wish I could have gone inside.
There was actually a Lime kiln here. COOL!
Time to head back towards the big city.
