Take a trip back to the Old West at Novotny’s, just outside of David City. This stop features a refurbished draft horse barn, old-fashioned buggies, a sleigh, and an old funeral hearse. The draft horses that call Novotny’s home are familiar faces at many Butler County Events, including the Butler County Parade.
For a taste of the out-of-the-ordinary, take a stroll through Ox Bow Pioneer Memorial Park. This park is located along the Ox Bow Trail, one of the most overlooked of Nebraska’s historic trails (also known as the California Trail, Old Freighters Trail, Mormon Road, Old Kearney Road, and Old Nebraska City Road).
While not fully developed as a tourist attraction, the park is open to allow visitors onto the property. One of the most unique features of the park is the life-sized concrete Conestoga Wagons and statues. These historic works of art create a picture of life along the Ox Bow Trail that, while gone, has not been forgotten.
One of the largest British White Cattle Operations lies just outside of Bellwood, NE.The Bohaty Family welcomes visitors of all types to tour their small Family Farm, where you can take a look at a “Day In The Life” of a successful Nebraska Cattle Operation. Owners Walter and Nancy are charter members of the British White Cattle Association, and have been full-time farmers for many many years. In addition to sales and shows, the Bohaty Family Farm has also hosted “fun days” and Open Houses. A trip to see Bohaty’s British White Cattle is educational AND fun!
