Crook House

 General George Crook commanded the Department of the Platte from 1875 to 1882, and from 1886 to 1888, with headquarters at Fort Omaha. In 1879 he spoke on behalf of the Ponca tribe and Native American rights during the trial of Standing Bear v. Crook, in which the federal judge affirmed that Standing Bear had some of the rights of US citizens. The house was completed in the same year. The General Crook house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1969 and was named a Nebraska State Historical Site in 1970.
