George Cather Bed & Breakfast

The George Cather Homestead is now a bed & breakfast located south of Bladen, Nebraska. Established on the prairie in the 1870s, it took several years to complete. On arrival in Nebraska, the Cather’s had lived in a dugout located in the pasture west of the home. As Virginians who were orientated to building on hillsides, this home was an adaptation of this tradition. A three-story structure made this home one of the largest and spacious on the divide.

Of interest to all who enter the home, is knowledge of Willa Cather’s cousin, Grosvenor Phillips Cather (G.P. Cather), son of George Cather, the prototype for Claude Wheeler in “One of Ours” for which she won the Pulitzer Prize in 1922.

The home is listed on the National Registry of Historic Properties in Nebraska.
