Oxen Pulling a Prairie Schooner

While driving west on US-30 from Kearney you'll find two gigantic oxen pulling a prairie schooner. The prairie schooner is really the outer part of a building that used to be a trading post and the oxen are actually part of the building. The trading post closed some years ago when the owner passed away, and the building is now in poor condition. It's a memento of the way things "used to be" on the old highway.
