George Winslow's Grave
This revered grave of 49er George Winslow, discovered in the 1870s, has been carefully preserved ever since by the private landowners on whose property the grave sits. OCTA placed its marker here in 1990, as part of the 1990 OCTA convention in Omaha.
While the grave is located on private property, visitors are welcome. To reach the site, go north from Fairbury, Nebraska, on State Highway 15 for about four miles from its intersection with US 136. Turn west on a gravel road. Proceed for about 1.5 miles to a gate into the pasture. If the gate is open, cars may be driven on the obvious lane to the gravesite. If the gate is closed, walk the easy 1/4 mile to the site. And be sure to close the gate behind you!
