Lake Minatare's Lighthouse

Search Minatare Nebraska

Built to simulate a lighthouse, it is the only such structure in Nebraska. Standing 55 feet tall it was intended to serve as a combination shelter house and observation tower. Built entirely of native stone by the Veterans Conservation Corps Camp BR-1 between 1939 and 1957, the landmark lighthouse was a beacon of hope in the days of the Depression. Open to the public it offers a spectacular view of the lake and river valley.
