The history of the village of Irvington, near North Omaha, Nebraska, starts in 1857 and extends to today.
This is a history of the founder of Florence, Nebraska’s home.
The Mormon Tree, also called the Brigham Young Tree, has loomed over my studies of Florence history for a decade now. I’ve seen mentions of it in old newspapers and heard stories about it from older people. However, I couldn’t find anything about it all this time. Until last month. Finally, after all these years, I wrote the Mormon Trail Center at Historic Winter Quarters to ask about the Mormon Tree.
