Great Plains Welsh Heritage Project


Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail


The Great Plains Welsh Heritage Project is based in Wymore, Nebraska.  Come visit our museum, 307 Seventh St. in Wymore, Nebraska, USA, where we maintain many Welsh heritage artifacts.  Our Welsh garden is a relaxing and tranquil setting for enjoying the outdoors.


We host several events throughout the year and a biannual festival to preserve and promote Welsh American heritage of Nebraska and the Great Plains.  Check our Events page for upcoming activities. As a service to Welsh Americans, we provide archival space for historical documents related to Welsh American heritage.


To assist with your genealogical research, we provide look-ups and translations of Y Drych (The Mirror), a Welsh American newspaper published in the United States.


St. Dwynwen’s Day Concert by Whooson1st at the Welsh Centre
2:00 PM




Welsh people celebrate lovers on January 25, St. Dwynwen’s Day, three weeks ahead of the rest of the world (on St. Valentine’s Day). What an advantage! By the time others get around to sending out their Valentines, all the cutest girls and hunkiest guys have been scooped up by the Welsh on St. Dwynwen’s Day!

Come and be Welsh for a day, Saturday, January 25 at 2:00 p.m., at the Welsh Centre. Hear the story of Dwynwen, the Patron Saint of Lovers in Wales. Bring a loved one or a friend, or come alone and join the party. Who knows who you might meet?

We have invited the new Lincoln band, “Whooson1st” to serenade us. The band consists of Don and Barb, who are incredibly talented musicians. They each play abouta dozen different instruments, and sing as well. They specialize in Celtic music – Welsh, Irish, Scottish – and folk and bluegrass as well. And they have a marvelous sense of humor!

Afterwards we will serve a Welsh afternoon tea (and coffee) in the Exhibit Hall. You can also see our new Library room, now twice as big as before, and peek into the new Archives room added to the Welsh Centre building.

There is no charge – this is our gift to the Wymore-Blue Springs community and neighbors. Come and enjoy a fun afternoon with your friends (and lovers, for those who are so blest).
