Owner description: Arbor Lodge in Nebraska City, Nebraska, was the home of the J. Sterling and Caroline Morton family. The four-room house built in 1855 was renovated over the years into a Victorian-style mansion. The 52-room mansion includes many Morton family Victorian and Empire-era furnishings. Guests may stroll the gardens and trails to view towering trees, many of which were planted by the Morton family. Arbor Lodge State Historical Park and Arboretum encompasses 72 acres of wooded area and gardens, with over 260 species of trees and shrubs.

Grand, original mansion in NE City! You can see all of the hard work and intricate carvings in this 150-year-old building, going room by room. Lots of awards grace the walls and there is quite a collection of books here too. Brick roads surround the property. You can even use a original machine to make apple cider nearby, and learn about the history of the area!

The mansion is quite something to see each room has a story to tell. The grounds are beautiful walk sometimes you can see deer. People love to walk around this park, the stables are also very interesting to see.

We love to walk there in the summer when we go to visit Nebraska City. It has a great park for children and is absolutely beautiful in the summer. The house has a tour which is something fun to do. Its fun for everyone. Its a nice thing to go once or twice if you are on vacation. Great for taking pictures! Overall a fun place.

The Morton family home was established when there wasn't anything in the west except indians. The phrase "go west, young man" was right on for the Mortons. A real diamond in the "frontier"
