Community

The Friend Historical Society is constantly evolving to meet not only the original mission of restoring the Warren Building including the Opera House, but to meld the needs of the community to the potential offered by the Opera House parts and pieces as they come online.

Some events we have hosted, for example, are as diverse as the Friend High School Junior Senior Prom (San Carlo Room) and the University of Nebraska at Lincoln’s Opera Presentation.
