The home of Bess Streeter Aldrich, one of Nebraska’s finest writers. She recreated in her short stories and novels the ups and downs of small town living in hopes that her readers would understand the hardships and struggles of the times, but also see the virtues and hopes that became a part of these prairie times in the Midwest. The Aldrichs moved to Elmwood in 1909 and built the house in 1922.
