Ash Hollow State Historic Park

Search Lewellen Nebraska

An unusual geologic stratum known as the Ash Hollow Formation provides an excellent example of the landscape of the central Great Plains just before the Ice Age. Excavations indicate that man inhabited this area as long as 7000 to 8000 years ago.

The thousand-acre park contains a visitor center with a 13-minute videotape presentation, a restored 1903 schoolhouse, a picnic area and a nature trail.
