Additional Information

In conjunction with the Spirit of Nebraska Wilderness Park, the gateway into Omaha's central business district is transformed into the Gateway of the West with this one-of-a-kind tribute to the people who settled this great land. Pioneer Courage is an homage to the bravery, courage and entrepreneurial spirit that defined a generation and left an indelible impact on the American culture. Pioneer Courage Park is the result of the first collaboration between Utah sculptors Blair Buswell and Edward Fraughton. When the pioneers first traversed Nebraska, they would have seen a wild expanse spreading out before them, with no man-made object to obstruct their view.
