Throwback Thursday: Beatrice State Developmental Center

Happy #ThrowbackThursday from Nebraska Memories!

This week, we have a 9.5″ x 6.5″ black and white photograph showing the grounds of the Beatrice State Developmental Center (BSDC).

This image from 1981 is owned and published by the Beatrice State Developmental Center. The BSDC has served Nebraskans with intellectual or developmental disabilities since 1887. This collection includes images of the Center and its previous incarnations as Beatrice State Home and the Nebraska Institute for the Feeble-Minded. The items in this collection span from the 1880s to the 1980s.
