DescriptionThe Mormons who established Genoa in 1857 were forced to abandon their settlement 2 years later when it became part of a newly created Pawnee reservation. From 1884-1934 Native American students from around the nation were sent to Genoa's U.S. Indian School where they learned vocational trades to further their assimilation into American society. The 640-acre facility became one of the largest of its type in the nation. Exhibits in the restored Manual Training Building of the original U.S. Indian School, 209 E. Webster Ave., recall its history. The building is open Sat.-Sun. 1-5, Memorial Day-Labor Day, or by appointment; phone (402) 993-6636.
