Nebraska: Arbor Lodge State Historical Park and Arboretum
More than 250 varieties of trees and shrubs -- many planted by the founder of Arbor Day and his family -- flourish in a 72-acre arboretum in Nebraska City. The grounds of Arbor Lodge State Historical Park and Arboretum include at least 10 state-champion trees, the largest examples of their species in Nebraska. Visitors can also tour Arbor Lodge, a 52-room neo-Colonial mansion that was the home of J. Sterling Morton, founder of Arbor Day (first celebrated in 1872) and U.S. Secretary of Agriculture under President Grover Cleveland.
