Greetings from Toadstool Park!
This week’s #throwback features Toadstool Park. This unusual rock formations can be found 16 miles north of Crawford, Nebraska.
This image is owned by the Crawford Historical Society and Museum and is published to Nebraska Memories by the Crawford Public Library. The Crawford Historical Society and Museum, in partnership with the Crawford Public Library, digitized a number of images of the Crawford area in the late 1800s and early 1900s. The collection includes portraits of Crawford residents, photographs of local businesses, and souvenir postcards. One notable item is the first “official” photograph of the town, taken on July 1, 1886, the day Crawford was incorporated and named.
Check it out on the Nebraska Memories archive!
