During the entire month of March, the North Platte Public Library will have a photographic exhibit of homesteaders and early photographs of the town, prairie-scapes, and railroad. The exhibit will also include copies of historic photographs and descriptions of William Cody (Buffalo Bill), the developing North Platte Downtown and businesses, Fort McPherson, Schools and Churches, and more.  The Library will have a three-dimensional exhibit with a plow, saddle and other early prairie artifacts on loan from the Lincoln County Historical Museum to help give modern day children and adults a sense of life on the prairie in 1867.
