History Nebraska was founded in 1878 to “encourage historical research and inquiry, spread historical information . . . and to embrace alike aboriginal and modern history.” In 1883 it was designated a state institution and began receiving financial support from the legislature. Legislation in 1994 changed History Nebraska from a state institution to a state agency.
