At one time, there were more than 100 Grand Army of the Republic Halls in Nebraska. Only four remain today.
The Nebraska City G.A.R. Hall, built in 1894, is the only one of these halls in the state that has undergone restoration and development as a Civil War and G.A.R. museum. In addition, it is the only Civil War Museum in Nebraska.
The Hall is a reminder to us and to our children of the presence of Civil War veterans in Nebraska City and the role they played in the growth of the community, state and nation after the war.
Dedicated to the memory of the Union and Confederate veterans, the Hall is being maintained so that it may once again serve the community as a meeting place, research library and historical museum. Hours of operation are listed above.
