In the age of technological advances, some may forget how our country actually came together.
Those at the Cozad museum hope to refresh people's memories by hosting the "Journey Stories" Smithsonian traveling exhibit. It depicts why people immigrated to America, how they got here, and what challenges they faced to settle this country.
Officials say it's important to remember the sacrifices of our ancestors.
"I think the big thing, the important thing about 'Journey Stories' is that we have no clue about the hardships," said exhibit chair Marilyn Peterson. "And they don't realize how treacherous it was to come from the East coast to the West coast to get here."
The exhibit is open every day at the Cozad museum until October 6th, and includes a Lionel train demonstration on Labor Day from 10-2.
