SUBJECT: Neligh Mills Jamboree, July 4th

The Nebraska State Historical Society invites you to come to Neligh Mill State Historic Site on July 4th to hear Nebraska sing at the Neligh Mills Jamboree. From 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. the Elkhorn Valley will ring with the music of four Nebraska traditions. The title of the event, I Hear America Singing, comes from the Walt Whitman poem that celebrates America's many voices. At Neligh you will hear those American sounds. Performances will include:

This open air concert is FREE and family friendly. Bring your lawn chairs or blankets for a good celebration of our nation's birthday. The concert is part of Neligh's annual Old Mill Days. There will be food vendors, but feel free to bring a picnic supper.

The Neligh Mills Jamboree is sponsored by the Nebraska State Historical Society and funded in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency with additional support from local entities and individuals. For more information visit or call 1-800-833-6747.
