Victorian Festival

A look back into Superior's past reveals an abundance of history and Victorian heritage. Known and the Victorian Capital of Nebraska, Superior is proud to host their Victorian Festival every Memorial Weekend Honoring Lady Evelene Brodstone Vestey.

Lady Vestey has become one of the most admired and respected woman of her time Born in 1875, she graduated from high school at the age of 14 and lect Superior to study stenographer in Chicago with the Vestey Cold Storage Company. From there she rose through the ranks to become chief auditor and troubleshooter for the Vestey Cold Storage Company, one of the biggest conglomerates of England. At the peak of her career, Evelene found herself earning $250,000 a year (comparable to $5 million a year today) making her the highest paid executive of her time.

Evelene traveled the world for the Vestey brothers during WWI. Evelene married the man who built an empire shipping refrigerated meat to the allies during the war, William asked her to adopt the British spelling for her name: Evelyn. They made heir home at Kingswood, a historic castle in London. Lord Vestey died in December of 1940 and five months later on May 23, 1941, Evely passed away. Her ashes were sent back to Superior for interment at Evergreen Cemetery, making her the only nobility to be bkuried in the State of Nebraska.

Evelyn never lost interest for Superior. Among her many gifts to the community were a building site and funds to erect a hospital, she established a scholarship fund for Superior Hight School grasduates, deeded land for the bird sanctuary and financially contributed to improvements to Superior's parks.

We highly recommend a visit to the Nuckolls County Museum, 612 E. 6th in Superior, not only will you view The Lady Vestey Exhibit, but you will take a step back in time and have the pleasure of visiting the focal point of early history for Nuckolls COunty.
