Throwback Thursday: Theodore Roosevelt visiting Nebraska

We’re back with another #ThrowbackThursday!

This postcard from 1912 shows a large crowd gathered at the train station in Holdrege, Nebraska. Theodore Roosevelt stands on the platform at the back of the train waving to the people.

This image is owned by the Phelps County Historical Society and published by the Holdrege Area Public Library. In partnership, they digitized a collection of images portraying the history of Phelps County starting in the mid 1880s.
