Wilber, Nebraska: The Les Vilda Presidential Museum and Library

Les Vilda first ran for President in 2008 (unsuccessfully), so in 2010 he optimistically opened an official museum and library -- in an outhouse. Les has pledged to run until he is elected.

102 N. Main St., Wilber, NE
The outhouse and its sign, which is as big as the outhouse, stand in a grassy lot on the east side of Hwy 103/N. Main St. just north of E. 1st St.

Proof that Les is more. Reminds me of one of those little free libraries. Just did a drive by; looks like there's some fun stuff inside.

Les is a really smart and entertaining gentleman. The Presidential Museum is worth stopping at on your way into Wilber. Also be sure to stop at other local businesses for Czech food and Pivo (beer)!

It's an outhouse. Les Vilda is a life-long resident of Wilber with a long, white beard. He likes to pose for photos dressed as Uncle Sam. He ran for President as the standard-bearer for the B.E.E.R. Party in 2008 (unsuccessfully), so in 2010 he opened his museum and library, expecting to win in 2012. Didn't happen, but Les remains hopeful. Hygiene alert: the outhouse is not a functioning outhouse. Nov. 2019: Photo added.
