Description: The Mission of the Great Plains Welsh Heritage Project is to discover, preserve, interpret and celebrate the history and contributions of Welsh pioneers on the North American prairies, to further public understanding and appreciation of America’s ethnic and cultural diversity. We house a state-of-the art archive building which includes Welsh language newspapers from the 1850’s. Our library houses many artifacts individuals can utilize to research their family histories. Our organization also owns a one-room schoolhouse located in McCandless Park and a railroad museum dedicated to the past employees of the Burlington Northern Railroad all in Wymore, NE.
