Here at Lied Lodge & Conference Center in Nebraska City, Nebraska, we’re reaching a significant milestone in 2013, and it’s one we couldn’t have reached without you.

We’re celebrating 20 years of inspiring stewardship.

The Arbor Day Foundation acquired J. Sterling Morton’s original 260-acre estate in Nebraska City in 1972, and this National Historic Landmark was the ideal setting for carrying forth Morton’s legacy — specifically through a state-of-the-art conference center. After more than five years of planning, design, fundraising, and construction, Lied Lodge first opened our doors to the public in October 1993.
