In 1854, the Nebraska Territory was formed by the United States Congress, and in 1868 the first capitol was constructed in Lincoln. The current capitol building is the third in the city of Lincoln, with construction beginning in 1922. The capitol is the tallest building in the city, and the second tallest capitol building in the country. The structure consists of a large square base with a 362-foot tower rising above the center of the square. Inside, the three primary branches of Nebraska government are housed, as well as four observatory decks on the 14th floor which offer great views of the city.
Located close to downtown Lincoln and adjacent to Antelope Park, this combination zoo and botanical garden is a fun and inexpensive way to spend a day with the kids.

In addition to the animal exhibits, more than 400 species of plants are attractively displayed throughout the zoo. Kids can also ride on the zoo's miniature railroad, visit the gift shop or dine at Valentino's Safari Cafe. Check website for varying dates.
This former residence of politician William Jennings Bryan, called "Fairview," is located on the campus of Bryan Medical Center in Lincoln, Nebraska. Before moving to Lincoln in the late 1880s, Bryan practiced law in Jacksonville, Illinois. He would later run three unsuccessful campaigns for President, before becoming Secretary of State under Woodrow Wilson in 1913. Dedicated to giving back to the community, Bryan donated Fairview and the surrounding land to the Nebraska Conference of the United Methodist Church in 1922, and helped establish the hospital and medical center where his home is preserved today. Fairview was restored to its original condition in 1994, and now houses several research institutes affiliated with the medical center.
