Souvenir Friday- Plans for Storyland Zoo in North Platte, Nebraska
In the late 1950s up to the mid-1970s many service groups in communities spread throughout the United States developed Storyland theme parks for the young citizens of their community. In North Platte Nebraska, the Rotary club was working on a Storyland Zoo that would also feature some of the railroad heritage. This was late for the development of this type of park and it appears that the zoo was never constructed. The souvenir is an architectural story board featuring Jack and the Beanstalk and also the trains to be part of the zoo. The design and art is beautiful and I wish they had finished the park.
