The CORNHUSKER Letterbox, Lincoln, Nebraska



Placed 9/13/1999. Note: This box has been reported as missing!

The Cornhusker Letterbox was created as a tribute to Nebraska's corn growers. To my knowledge, it was the first letterbox to be placed in the state of Nebraska. It is located in Lincoln in a lovely lakeside park that features spectacular views of the State Capital and Cornhusker Stadium.
