About Homestead House
Since the day our doors opened in July of 1997, Homestead House has been providing the wonderful people of Beatrice, Nebraska, with a caring atmosphere, an active community, and a comfortable life. From the programs to the amenities, our respect for each resident’s individuality is at the center of all that we do. We would love for you to visit us with your family and loved ones and see for yourself!
Whether we’re winning awards for our quality of care or our quality of parade in the Homestead Days Parade, everyone at Homestead House is always putting their best foot forward. Residents don’t do anything halfway, and that includes barbeques in the courtyard, ice cream socials, the holiday door decorating contest, and so many more fun activities. Residents and their families often tell us that they knew they belonged here when they made their first visit.
Homestead House is proud to be part of a community so rich in history. Beatrice was founded on the banks of the Big Blue River, where the railroad, farming, and local businesses thrived. Daniel Freeman, the city’s first homesteader, filed his application with the Land Office at Brownville only a few minutes into the new year on January 1, 1863. Today, Beatrice offers a variety of attractions for all ages. Many visitors enjoy walking the prairie trails at Homestead National Monument and learning about the original homesteaders, and the beautifully manicured city parks are the perfect place to camp, picnic, and play. Beatrice is also known for its progressive schools for all ages, as the home to Grandma’s Fruitcake, for the ever-popular Beatrice Speedway, and for hosting the Governor’s Shotgun Blast every fall. We drive groups to local markets, restaurants, and attractions in downtown Beatrice, as well as doctor visits. Have a request? We are more than happy to take you wherever you need or want to go—just ask!
