Not any that I know of. There was a small Welsh settlement SW of Trenton, but not much left except cemetery.
I am trying to round up some Welsh-interested folk out here in Western Nebraska. So you know of any that have been down to see you guy on that end of the state?
Welsh Carpentry Tools Donated to Museum
Here's the latest exhibit at the Welsh Centre. Thanks to Elaine M. for the photo. These cabinet maker's tools were brought over from Wales by David Beynon. There are dozens of moulding planes. They are so beautiful, they must be seen in person to appreciate fully! We will be adding more tools plus a couple of labels soon.

Welsh Heritage Weekend
One of the popular activities during the biennial Welsh Heritage Weekend has been the cemetery crawl through Bethel Cemetery. Local descendants of the Welsh pioneers, dressed in period clothing, describe what life on the Great Plains was like 75-150 years ago.
Hanes Cymry America = A History of the Welsh in America (1872)
Our newest publication, Hanes Cymry America = A History of the Welsh in America, translated by Martha A. Davies and Phillips G. Davies. This is a new translation with many corrections and revision AND (for the first time) an index of names PLUS facsimiles of the advertising pages bound into the original 1872 Welsh-language edition by Rev. R.D. Thomas. It is a goldmine for Welsh American genealogy.
Rev. Thomas traveled to Welsh settlements and provides invaluable info for the Welsh immigrant--including names of prominent Welsh families, churches, types of work available, and short histories of the Welsh in each area.
Two previous books also have been released and available for purchase. The first "Early History of the Welsh in the Proscairon District of Wisconsin". This is a translation of the 1894 Welsh edition by Martha Davies, based on a draft by the late Phillips G. Davies. The second is "A History of The Calvinistic Methodists in Utica, New York" by Phil Davies. Click here for book order form.
