Area Attractions

Boot Hill

In the late 1800s, when Ogallala was an infant town on the Union Pacific Railroad line, Boot Hill Cemetery was the final resting place for cowboys, drifters, and settlers. We hear numerous stories of those days when gun battles took their toll on human life. More here.

Petrified Wood Gallery

There’s always something new at the Petrified Wood Gallery: “Keith County’s Little Gem.” Visit the collection of ancient woods, gemstones, fossils, and Native American arrowheads and artifacts. Some of the most unusual items include artwork and music boxes made of petrified wood. The gift shop features artwork, jewelry, and other treasures from local and regional artists.
