Explore the 100th Meridian Museum in historic downtown Cozad and enjoy the displays and exhibits that tell the stories of the rich heritage of the early settlers as well as presenting a portrayal of contemporary life.
Be sure to see the Concord touring coach that was used by William Howard Taft on a visit to Yellowstone Park. See original paintings, along with items from Nebraska Plastics and Monroe Auto, school books with autographs, beautiful musical instruments, the history of many businesses, tributes to veterans, the antique popcorn stand, a salute to Cozad Alfalfa Capitol of the World, and an Olympic Torch carried through Nebraska by the Pony Express on its way to Atlanta.
The museum is located on the historic Lincoln Highway. The Lincoln Highway stretched across 3,389 miles beginning construction in 1913 when a group of American industrialists envisioned a "continuous improved highway from the Atlantic to the Pacific, open to lawful traffic of all description, without toll charges, and to be a lasting memorial to Abraham Lincoln.” The Lincoln Highway banner is proudly displayed in front of the museum as part of its official route and an original Lincoln Highway marker can be viewed in the front window.
