Day One of Big Blend Radio's History Festival features travel writer Debbie Stone who shares her adventures In Northwest Nebraska, where she explored important landmarks for pioneers making their way out west during the mid-1800s, including Chimney Rock, Scotts Bluff, Legacy of the Plains Museum, Agate Fossil Beds National Monument, and even Carhenge. Tens of thousands of people traveled through this area, attracted to the forgiving terrain along the Platte River. The Oregon, California and Mormon Trails, and the Pony Express all used this passageway, making the route the “Main Street of America.” Read Debbie's story on
