Graves Public Library has been reopened as Graves Library Museum. Located on Third Street, two and a half blocks west from Highway 35, in Wakefield, Nebraska, this library was one of the most luxurious libraries in the area when it was constructed. A walk through the building will take you as far back as 1881.
Train service played a major part in the birth of towns across the country and that was also true in Wakefield's history. The railroad ran through the town and was completed from Sioux City, Iowa, to Wakefield in 1881. The first depot was built that same year.
