This Year's Project: Norris Alley Enhancements
About Our Organization
Norris Institute is a non-profit corporation created to educate the public on and highlight the life of Senator George Norris. In addition, the organization undertakes projects that benefit Southwest Nebraska in other capacities.
Current Project: Norris Alley Enhancements
Norris Alley has been an exciting addition to the bricks - downtown McCook. To make it an even greater place to gather, the Norris Institute would like to work on a few enhancements to the facility to increase its usage during our changing seasons. These enhancements might include shading or some type of misting system to help alleviate heat during the summer months and firepits to help battle the cold during our colder months.
The project will construct an outdoor event facility that will be named Norris Alley. The facility will include a water feature that will serve as a memorial to the late Senator George Norris. Current plans are to have the facility available to the general public during the day with the facility available for private gatherings on a limited, reserved basis.
