Dedicated as the Nebraska Statehood Memorial in 1968, the Kennard House is the oldest standing structure in Lincoln’s original plat. At the 1869 Italianate home of Nebraska’s first Secretary of state Thomas P. Kennard, you will learn about the excitement of creating a new state capital, and you see the formality of Victorian lifestyles. The oldest residence in Lincoln has been restored to the 1870’s era.
