Unrecorded and ephemeral promotional brochure for the tiny town of Beatrice, Nebraska, located in the southeast corner of the state. The town, founded in 1857, experienced a boom in the late-19th century when three major railroads passed through it. The present work gives a brief history of the state, the town, and the town's merits for manufacturers and agriculture, while a full panel advertises a series of rail excursions to the town from various locations in the East.
