Historic Haymarket and Bill Harris Iron Horse Park

Lincoln, NE

Great restaurants, unique shopping and fun nightspots located among restored turn-of-the-century warehouses make this area sizzle with activity. Antique shops, art galleries, Pinnacle Bank Arena and the first microbrewery in Nebraska draw visitors day and night. The Historic Haymarket name comes from the original market square of 1867 where wagons, camping equipment and hay were bought and sold. In 1874 the city shifted the area a few blocks west and north and renamed it "Haymarket."

The spirit of the 1800's flows into Iron Horse Park located on the north side of the historic Burlington Northern Railroad depot. A three-dimensional brick mural, "Iron Horse Legacy," shows old locomotive Number 710 pulling the first train into Lincoln in 1870 on July 4th. A restored CB&Q steam engine originally built in the Havelock shops, an 1890s water tower fountain and reflecting pool along with a railroad-themed children's play area offer visitors a respite from the bustle of the city.
