Business Records

The records of some Nebraska businesses and corporations are found among the Library/Archives' manuscript holdings. While many such collections exist and more are being added, ranging from a single hotel register to the records of banks, mills, and ranches, some of the Nebraska State Historical Society's most prominent business record collections are those of the Union Pacific Railroad (from its construction era), Omaha's Union Stockyards Company, and the Lincoln Land Company.

Search this website for all Historical Society records and manuscript finding aids.

Note:  To limit your search to just the Business Records collections, enter a key word in the Search box along with the term "manuscripts/business" (without quotes).   For example:  grain manuscripts/business

For additional information about any of these collections, please contact our Library Staff.
