Description
Arbor Lodge Historical Park is situated in Nebraska City, Nebraska. This recreational area and historic mansion were once the home of J. Sterling Morton, the founder of Arbor Day. Mr. Morton sought to inspire a generation to strive for a greener world by planting more trees. 

Today's Arbor Lodge Historical Park consists of 72 acres of land which contains an arboretum, an Italian palazzo-style garden, a log cabin, a carriage house, as well as many trails suitable for hiking and leisurely strolls. The grounds are also fragrant with the blooms of over 200 different varieties of lilacs (in season). 

It is not known if dogs are permitted on the grounds though it is likely they are allowed to join their owners on the trail portions of this park only. No amenities are provided for dogs nor is there a play area reserved for their use. Owners should bring drinking water with them as well as poop bags. 

It is the responsibility of all owners to clean up after their dogs to help maintain a clean and attractive park space for all to enjoy. Arbor Lodge Historical Park is a public recreational area. Access to the park and trails is free of charge; however, there is an $8 fee for those wishing to tour the mansion. 

The mansion is home to 52 rooms and contains many artifacts from Mr. Morton's family life. Those who have visited this beautiful facility remark that it is similar to stepping back into time to experience a piece of world history. The grounds are kept meticulously landscaped and clean. 

It is unknown if bathrooms are available for public use, but it is likely. Dogs who visit the premises must observe all Nebraska state laws which include being properly vaccinated and licensed with their city. Looking to embrace a piece of American history? Why not plan a visit to Arbor Lodge Historical Park?
