Most inhabitants are descendants of German and Scandinavian
immigrants in particular, who arrived after the completion of the Union
Pacific Railroad (1869). The wave of immigration subsided
approx. 1890, and since then population growth has been very
low. Most live in the eastern and most urbanized areas, while the
western prairie areas contain only small patches and are
characterized by the 1800s grid-shaped projection pattern. Largest
city is Omaha (409,000).
The landscape consists mainly of fertile plains, sloping slightly
from ca. 1500 m at the foot of the Rocky Mountains in the west to
approx. 300 m at the Missouri border on the east. 92% of the area is
cultivated or grazed, and although the short-cut agricultural
migration has taken place since the drought years of the 1930s,

family farms is 345 ha; extensive farming with extensive cattle

area, but no settlements were created. By the Louisiana acquisition
of 1803, the United States acquired the area that was home to
semi-nomadic and nomadic Indians, but as it was considered a barren
and uncultivable wasteland, the Great American Desert, it
remained until the mid-1800s. mainly transit country for immigrants
heading for the Pacific Coast.
With the Kansas-Nebraska Act 1854, the Nebraska
Territory was created, from which the Colorado and Dakota
Territories were separated 1861-63. After taking up the state in
1867, prairie cultivation took off.
