“Hitch up your wagon!”

Dobby’s Frontier Town began as one man’s quest to save a vanishing piece of history before it was lost.  Kenneth Dobby Lee’s personal journey helped save nineteen buildings from a bygone era and allowed several generations of his family to grow up to appreciate the rich history of Western Nebraska.  Caring for this town has been a family’s way of life for many years, but is now being passed on to a wonderful group of volunteers who hope to preserve this era of history for many years to come.  We warmly invite you to experience a hands-on trip into a moment in time that has quietly passed, but is not forgotten. Unlike many historical attractions that allow you to view the displays from behind a roped  barricade, we have left a majority of the displays open for a true hands-on experience.  We know you will appreciate the trust we have placed in you to handle each piece of history with care and respect, so all who follow you will also enjoy this moment in time.   Thank you for visiting our website and we hope that you will stop by the town.  Oh yeah...did we mention it was free?  Although, if you would like to make a donation we would greatly appreciate it.

This was absolutely fantastic and on top of this FREE. One of the volunteers (the guy with the awesome moustache) gave us our own personal tour. He knew so much and the other awesome thing was that you were allowed to touch all the many artefacts.
We did a 5 month tour of the USA and this was such a highlight. The kids really liked it too. Highly recommended. After this go and see the car henge just up the road.

This place is a hidden treasure!! Be sure to donate when you stop in since it’s all free and even the help is volunteers. Lots of antiques to explore and each building is set up so neat!!
