Mr. Butcher came to Nebraska in 1880 where he established the first photographic gallery in Custer County. From that time, until his death in 1927, he documented the settlement of Nebraska. He left a legacy of over 4000 negatives and prints spanning the settlement of Custer, Dawson, and Buffalo counties and the Sandhills. Immediately following the program we will have refreshments and a short meeting.
