Omaha, Nebraska: Geese Flight, Wagon Train, Stampede

Much more than geese; the sculpture includes a wagon train and a buffalo stampede. Dozens of bronze animals, spread over six city blocks; some pieces weigh up to six tons.

1602 Dodge St., Omaha, NE
Downtown. The sculpture begins on the north side of Capitol Ave. between N. 14th and N. 15th Sts. After that, follow the stampede and the geese to 16th St and Dodge.

American Wagon Train Sculpture

The wagon train sculpture is located just off the interstate. This is a must see, especially now, to show the resilience and strength of the American spirit. Blair Buswell was the sculptor. A masterpiece to say the least.

I agree this is definitely worth a detour. The detail in amazing, right down to the eyelashes on the oxen.

The six-block-long bronze sculpture includes a buffalo stampede, a flight of geese, and a wagon stuck in mud.

Pioneer Courage Park

At 1601 Dodge Street in downtown Omaha there are larger-than-life Conestoga wagons and human figures heading west, with realistic facial expressions! One of the four wagons is twelve feet tall, and you can see the smiling children and the looks of grim determination on the adults.

There's free street parking on Sunday.

Wagon Train Sculpture

We only had time to see the wagon train part of this sculpture in downtown Omaha (next time I plan to see the bison and geese). These sculptures are larger than life and the detail of each is exceptional. Do take the time to park your car and walk around each sculpture -- it's well worth your time.

Geese sculpture.

Geese Fly into a Building

The wagon train is life size and runs through a park and onward for blocks. We drove the streets following the progression (Watch for traffic! We discovered it on a weekend). One of the most interesting things we stumbled across in two drives around the country.
