Happy #ThrowbackThursday from Nebraska Memories!

This picture from 1909 shows the Nebraska State Normal School at Kearney posed on Central Avenue in Kearney, Nebraska. Founded in 1905, the school was renamed to Nebraska State Teachers College in 1921 and then renamed again in 1963 to Kearney State College. In 1991, the college joined the Nebraska University system.
