Throwback Thursday: Formal Gardens

For this week’s #ThrowbackThursday, we’re taking a peek into the home of Ray Julius Nye.

This 7.5″ x 9.5″ photograph shows the well manicured formal gardens at The Elms, the residence of Ray and Anna Nye. The building is now the Louis E. May Museum and the home of the Dodge County Historical Society.

This image is owned by the Dodge County Historical Society and is published by Keene Memorial Library in Fremont, Nebraska. As partners, the Historical society and library worked to digitize and describe content owned by the historical society. The collection of photographs documents life in Fremont in the lat 1800s and early 1900s.

Check out all the collections on the Nebraska Memories archive.

Nebraska Memories is a cooperative project to digitize Nebraska-related historical and cultural heritage materials and make them available to researchers of all ages via the Internet. Nebraska Memories is brought to you by the Nebraska Library Commission. If your institution is interested in participating in this project, see for more information.
