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 now has been 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.
Have a wonderful day! =)
