Senator George Norris State Historic Site

706 Norris Avenue

George Norris spent over forty years representing Nebraskans in the United States Congress, but he always returned to his humble house in McCook, which served as his home base from 1902 to 1944. At the Norris House you'll discover the fascinating story of the father of the Rural Electrification Act, the Tennessee Valley Authority Act, and Nebraska's one-house legislature. The house and all its furnishings were donated to the Historical Society by Norris's wife, Ellie in 1968.
