Rooted In Faith: Heritage Churches of the Elkhorn Valley: Join us for an historical explanation of ten notable places of worship from throughout the Elkhorn River Valley.

From early humble wood-framed structures to the brick-and-mortar edifices later soaring over our prairies and urban landscapes, these houses of prayer represent where our communities came from as well as the hopes and dreams of their people and the bonds of connection that intertwined them. On view November 10th through February 2nd
