Christmas decorations are common in Nebraska towns, so sometimes we take them for granted. In parts of Nebraska, trees can be scarce, so on
Christmas Eve 1890, a group of creative young men in Trenton, NE used
something very unique for a Christmas tree at the main intersection of
town. This object was then decorated with some pine and cedar boughs, along with some barn lanterns. Can you tell me what the object was that they used for the Christmas tree?
