Glimpse into Murdock History

These are no ordinary photos, but COLOR photographs. In the 1950s this was almost unheard of then. It was cutting-edge "technology". Thank you to Ramona Oehlerking for the video/images. 

Many people have commented to me that Pastor Heim probably wasn't responsible for all these photos.  The photos were given to Maxine Cline.  

Fall is a reminder that harvest is just around the the corner, and any day now combines will start crawling down the road. Be careful out there.

The next month I will be pulling harvest photos from the past. Anyone know who this farmer is and what type of tractor he's using? Is is an Oliver? I'm not too good with my tractors. 

If you have some harvest photos to share please email them to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. I'm sure many would like to see them. 

Remember, reader-submitted photos like this are a reason why the newsletter is interesting. You can send your Murdock photos of events, friends, and family to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

 Elmwood Farmers Market

LAST WEEKEND!!!

Last chance to get your end of the season produce, baked goods, crafts, candles, soaps and more at the park this Saturday 8:00 - Noon.

Farmers Market Elmwood 82121

This years Farmers Market is wrapping up early this year. This will allow our vendors to explore other fall markets and opportunities as the attendance has waned during the fall. We kinda expected this to happen. Last year Covid restrictions limited activities and sporting events, so that made us the ONLY activity in town. 

We are discussing monthly Makers Market opportunities in town so you can still shop local. Many of us will be moving indoors to various establishments and many including Tea & More, Corner House Market and Twice Upon a Wick have online shopping options for pick up and drop off. 

Brandemic Bakery and Mad Moose Fresh also have shopping options to get your sourdough and guacomole fix. 

It has been a wonderful season and we look forward to seeing you this weekend!! 

Join our Elmwood Market Vendor group here for more details

Weeping Water Fall Festival Returns September 25th

WEEPING WATER, Ne — September 14, 2021 — The scarecrows will be lining Eldora Avenue ready for some fall fun and mysteries in Weeping Water on Saturday, September 25th. Headlining the events is the Show N Shine car show from 11 am to 4 pm on Eldora Avenue and the craft & vendor show at Gibson Hall from 9 am to 4 pm. While you’re at Gibson Hall, grab clues for adult and youth scavenger hunts and vote for your favorite scarecrow. The Vault Boutique at 208 W Eldora will be open and celebrating with giveaways, drinks, and deals.

The historical society has a day of family-friendly events planned.

Between tunes, he discusses how these songs provide glimpses into history by telling stories of the everyday life of pioneers during the 13 years before Nebraska statehood. Snacks will be available from Will Cover’s chuckwagon and the museums will be open for tours following the presentation. At Memory Lane Museum, stop in for ice cream and pick up a clue book for the Oakwood Cemetery Scavenger Hunt.

Learn about the brave settler who built the first cabin in the yet-to-be platted town. Walk past the grand home of drug store proprietor and state legislator Stephen Orton. See the site of the former CCC and German POW Camp. Stroll through the beautiful Oakwood Cemetery and learn about its rich history. Maps are available at the gazebo on Eldora Avenue, Heritage House Museum Complex, and the campground.

 WEEPING WATER, Ne — September 13, 2021 — Join the Weeping Water Valley Historical Society on September 25th for a day of free, family-friendly events. The day kicks off the Cemetery Scavenger Hunt at the historic Oakwood Cemetery. Entrants can pick up official clue books at area locations then visit the cemetery and find the answers to the mysteries while learning intriguing history about some of Weeping Water’s early residents.

 At 11:00 am, bring lawn chairs or blankets and join us at the Heritage House Museum Complex at 300 West H Street where Humanities Nebraska speaker David Seay will present Nebraska Territory Stories. In this upbeat presentation, David performs folk music that existed at the time Nebraska became a state on March 1, 1867. Between tunes, he discusses how these songs provide glimpses into history by telling stories of the everyday life of pioneers during the 13 years before Nebraska statehood. Combining his passions for music, history, and storytelling, David has presented HN Speakers Bureau programs since 1997. He is a master artist with the Nebraska Arts Council’s Artist-in-the-Schools Communities Residency Program and performs with his wife, Deborah Greenblatt, in the popular musical duo Greenblatt & Seay, which has participated in the Nebraska Arts Council’s Touring Program for more than 30 years. David plays over a dozen instruments, teaches private music lessons, and conducts workshops in harmonica. There will be snacks available from Will Cover’s historic chuckwagon and the Heritage House and Dr. Fate’s office will be open for tours following the presentation. Humanities Nebraska (HN) provides major funding for this program. HN receives support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Nebraska State Legislature, the Nebraska Cultural Endowment, and private donations.

Take a nostalgic stroll through the historic main street at Memory Lane Museum, 215 W Eldora, where the historical society is hosting an ice cream social from 10:00 am t0 2:00 pm. Memory Lane features displays and memorabilia cataloging the business interests of Weeping Water from the time the town was established. A diorama of the downtown businesses, built by the UNL School of Architecture includes pull-out drawers showing the occupants through the years. The Wilkinson Confectionery soda fountain was moved from next door, and a restored counter from Gibson Grocery is featured in the General Store display. You'll also find cemetery records, Weeping Water advertising collectibles, postcards, old yearbooks, and town records at Memory Lane.

The Scavenger Hunt Clue Book will be available starting September 25th in Weeping Water at Memory Lane Museum, Drue’s Kitchen, Express Lane, Stop N Shop, State Farm Insurance, and at Bloom Where You’re Planted Farm near Avoca.
