Bowring Ranch State Historical Park

Bowring Ranch State Historical Park is located north of Merriman, Nebraska in Cherry County, near the South Dakota border.

The park was originally a ranch owned by Arthur and Eva Bowring (the first female United States Senator from Nebraska). Senator Bowring willed her ranch to the state in memory of her husband. The ranch continues to be operated as a working Hereford cattle ranch. The ranch house and outbuildings have been preserved, and a large visitor center documenting the Bowrings' lives is on the site.
