Nebraska is bordered by South Dakota to the north; Iowa to the east and Missouri to the southeast, both across the Missouri River; Kansas to the south; Colorado to the southwest; and Wyoming to the west. It is the only triply landlocked U.S. state.
Nebraska witnessed a significant population increase from the 1870s through the 1880s. A number of causes led to the influx of new residents. The first was that the wide grassland lands were ideal for grazing livestock. The settlers were able to study the foreign geography of the area as a result of this. The invention of many farming technology was the second element. Agricultural innovations like barbed wire, windmills, and the steel plow, paired with favorable weather, allowed settlers to exploit Nebraska as ideal farming ground. Nebraska’s population had grown to over 450,000 people by the 1880s.
