Otoe County is rich in history and tradition, and was one of the first counties established in the Nebraska Territory. It hosts several prominent landmarks and famous personalities in Nebraska history, to include Arbor Lodge and J. Sterling Morton of the Nebraska City area. The Otoe County Courthouse is the oldest public building in Nebraska. It was erected 1864. Our society is dedicated to ensuring that our Otoe County heritage is remembered, our communities are preserved, and our ancestors are acknowledged for the sacrifices they made to become an important part of the Great State of Nebraska.
"The man who feels no sentiment of veneration for the memory of his forefathers; who has no natural regard for his ancestors of his kindred; is himself unworthy of kindred regard or remembrance." Daniel Webster
