For this week’s #ThrowbackThursday, we’re taking a peek inside the home of Ray Julius Nye.
This 7″x7″ photograph shows the interior of the entrance hall at The Elms. Located at 1643 North Nye Avenue in Fremont, Nebraska, The Elms was home to Ray and Anna Nye. This building is now the Louise E. May Museum and home to the Dodge County Historical Society.
This image is owned by the Dodge County Historical Society and was published by Keene Memorial Library. The Library and the Historical Society, both located in Fremont, worked as partners to digitize and describe content owned by the historical society. The collection of photographs documents life in Fremont during the late 1800s and early 1900s. It features local businesses, churches, schools, and private residences.
See the materials in this collection and many more on the Nebraska Memories archive!
