TECUMSEH - Southern Nebraska is welcoming Highway 136 travelers this weekend on the border-to-border Trail of Treasurers.

In its eight year, the event Oct. 4-6, follows the heritage highway through seven corridor counties  on a 238-mile stretch from Brownville east to Edison, Neb.

 Byway President Judy Coe said most of the counties have many barn quilts for viewing and there are Native American sites and powwows at some locations.

Thousands are expected for the byway-long flea market and garage sales.

Coe: “The positive impact of this event brings economic opportunities to the communities in the entire region.  The Junk Jaunt along Highway 20 in Nebraska and the Treasure Hunt along Highway 36 in Kansas has created very positive impacts in their regions in each state.”

Members of the Byway 136 Heritage Highway Association consider the event to be one of the region’s strongest economic development tools.

Coe: “This event has a big impact on tourism in the region, which is emerging as one of the strongest economic development tools that communities along the Byway can use to bring visitors and new dollars into their communities.”
