On Route 66 in Downtown Lincoln
In 1994, Dr. Sam Redding opened Prairie Years, offering teacher supplies and used books. Having worked in education for many years and heading the Academic Development Institute (a nationally recognized educational influence right above Prairie Years' store), Dr. Redding had the desire to provide a location in Downtown Lincoln that brought the community together for the good of our children. Prairie Years is located right on Historic Route 66 off the square where Abraham Lincoln once practiced law.
Invested in the Community
After more than 20 years of business, Prairie Years continues to offer timeless, quality items for all ages. At Prairie Years, we strive to create an environment where visitors of all ages feel nostalgic yet inspired to create memories for the future. We desire to see Downtown Lincoln thrive for the sake of families in our community and greatly appreciate the support we receive in return.
