Pawneeland: near Dannebrog, Nebraska
"Formerly the site of a large Pawnee encampment when the first Danish settlers [Dannebrog has a Danish heritage] crossed right in this spot in 1871." - Roger Welsch
The lone tree on the horizon to the left often has an eagle in it watching the river. The left edge of the photo is the approximate western boundary. The bridge is the eastern boundary. The property extends to the middle of the river's channel and changes as the river changes.
This cabin goes with the property (as do all the buildings elsewhere on the property). It was purchased by Mr. Welsch at another location and moved to its present site. It was originally built in the late 1800's.
