The Robert Henri Museum and Historical Walkway is located in what was once the childhood home of the artist. Henry lived in the house with his family for about a decade until a horrific shooting incident forced the whole family to leave the area in 1883. The town of Cozad was in fact founded by his father in 1872 and it was also around that time that John Jackson designed and built his family?s home, which then also served as a boarding house for settlers waiting for the next train.
The museum is now listed on the National Register of Historic Sites and has much of the artist?s works in showcase. Its permanent collection includes rare and original prints of the artist?s sketches and paintings while another exhibit features family memorabilia of the artist. The museum, however, also hosts exhibits of other artists as well as other events such as dinners, concerts, and holiday celebrations. Souvenir shopping may be done at the museum?s on-site shop. Those interested in seeing more of Henri?s works can also visit the National Gallery in London and the Brooklyn Museum in NYC.
