A. G. House
A. G. House

Located a short walking distance from downtown, this quaint dwelling was built in 1883 on land originally owned by T. B. Williams, Red Cloud's first physician and Webster County's first divorcee. Boasting original woodwork and plastered walls, this charming home has all modern amenities, and spacious living areas that include two bedrooms, a large living area, and a new spacious kitchen and bath. Take advantage of the southern sun porch or the cottage's front porch, to enjoy your morning cup of coffee, the evening's conversations, or just a quiet get-a-way. According to the 1885 Nebraska Agricultural Census, the home was then owned and occupied by Joseph and Sophia Loder Graves, seven of their fifteen children, and a domestic servant. Needless to say, the older boys most likely slept in the barn's haymow. A barn quilt square, commemorating this property is planned for the west barn door. The quilt on the east is in celebration of the life of H. R. Mullen. He owned and resided here prior to his death, and the family has retained possession of this property for over 50 years. It is currently owned by a daughter, whose hard work and TLC have made it into this quaint abode, that awaits your enjoyment.

Burlington Depot
Burlington Depot

Depots in general played a significant role in Willa Cather's writings. The original two-story section of the depot, constructed in 1897, is the building Cather was familiar with during her last years in Red Cloud. Red Cloud was on the main line of the Burlington and Missouri between Kansas City and Denver. At one time, eight passenger trains (and several grain and livestock trains) passed through town daily, making the Red Cloud Depot a busy and exciting place. The Burlington Depot houses an exhibit entitled The Burlington Railroad: Colonizing Cather's Wild Land. The exhibit emphasizes four themes:

  • disposition of the land and town planning in Webster County
  • colonization and settlement
  • markets
  • the political upheaval of the 1890s

The Burlington Depot was restored and managed by the Willa Cather Foundation and maintained by the Nebraska State Historical Society.
