FAIRBURY, Neb. (AP) - People are invited to visit Rock Creek Station State Historical Park on Labor Day weekend and watch history unfold in what became part of the state of Nebraska.
This coming weekend re-enactors will portray life in August 1864, when the area was gripped by an Indian uprising. The uprising shut down the trail used by immigrants and freighters. The re-enactors will show how the people of Rock Creek got their lives back to normal.
Rock Creek Station sits about six miles east-southeast of Fairbury in Jefferson County. A park entry permit is required.
