American Auto Trail-Cornhusker Highway (Beatrice NE to Kansas State Line)

This travel route crosses through the rolling hills of southeastern Nebraska.  Before European settlers, this region was the home of the Pawnee tribe of Native Americans.  With the opening of the lands with the Homestead Act of 1862, settlers flooded the Midwest.  The Omaha & Southwestern Railroad is followed by this route, which later was established as the Cornhusker Highway.
