Nebraska

Winter Quarters, outside present-day Omaha, was the temporary settlement Brigham Young established on the Mormon's 1846 flight to Utah. More than 3,000 of his followers remained there while he led an advance party westward in 1847, and the settlement was not finally abandoned until mid-1848.
