Download a QR code scanner onto your mobile device and explore Red Cloud's past with a local historian. Codes are located on lampposts throughout downtown Red Cloud. 

From the website:

Come join past visitors, including E. G. Marshall, Susan B. Anthony, David McCullough, Debra Winger, Helen Keller, Julie Harris, Father Flanigan, Levar Burton, Rin Tin Tin, Chief Medicine Horse, Maya Angelou, Garrison Keillor, Bishop Clarkson, Dick Cavett, Alexander Payne, William Jennings Bryan, Ken Burns, Carrie Nation, Gunnar & Matthew Nelson, Lucia Woods, Eva Marie Saint, Blind Boone, Jon Bokencamp, and many others as you travel the streets of Red Cloud. Absorb some of those same sites and structures that a few of our native and adopted sons and daughters: Cy Young, Willa Cather, Silas Garber, Lea Penman, Harry Obitz, Dazzy Vance, William Norris, Fatty Arbuckle, Mildred Rhodes Bennett, and Clarence Mitchell once experienced.

The tour upon which you are to embark is not a complete representation of Red Cloud’s past, but encapsulates only a relatively small amount of information on the subject. It represents over 1,000 hours of recent research and documentation, and borrows from the author’s thousands of hours of previous scholarly investigations related to the town’s rich heritage.

Under the umbrella of a Certified Local Government grant, funding for this project was provided via volunteer hours, monetary contributions from the Red Cloud Community Foundation and the City of Red Cloud, as well as grant support from the National Park Service, and the U. S. Department of the Interior as administered by the Nebraska State Historical Society under provisions of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966. Suzi Yost Schulz, a local Red Cloud Historian is responsible for the content of the project.
