Henderson Heritage & Tourism is excited about their inclusion in the Nebraska State Tourism’s 2020 Passport Program. This is the second time they were chosen to participate in this great statewide tourism program. Due to the COVID-19 situation, the start of the Passport program was rescheduled to begin on June 1 and extended through October 31st. These dates are subject to change due to any developments with the COVID-19 virus.
The Henderson Heritage & Tourism Executive Committee has decided to delay opening the Henderson Mennonite Heritage Park until July 1. Even though the park will be closed, Passport visitors may stop by and take a selfie and obtain a digital stamp. They are welcome to do a self tour of the park viewing the buildings and looking in the windows but there will be no volunteers available for guided tours or open buildings for the month of June.
“We are honored to have been chosen as one of the 2020 Passport Nebraska destinations. To be connected with the Passport program, working together as a team, increasing the number of visitors across our state and sharing Nebraska’s unique stories is empowering. We look forward to sharing our Mennonite Heritage and telling our story,” said HHT President Suzanne Ratzlaff.
The Heritage Park will be one of the 70 attraction stops where visitors can have their passport stamped. There are 10 Passport categories and the Heritage Park is listed under the “Root Routes” category. For more information about the program, go to http://nebraskapassport.com.
Passports can be obtained at any of the 70 stops on the program or pre-ordered at nebraskapassport.com. Participants are encouraged to download the Nebraska Passport App on their smartphone and get digital stamps, supplementing the physical Passport booklet for convenience.
