Located at the west end of the UNK campus, the Frank House was built in 1889 by George William Frank as a gift for his parents, George Washington Frank and his wife, Phoebe. The Franks ran a successful mercantile and real estate business, helped bring electricity to Kearney, and were major leaders in the early history of the community.
The Frank House serves as a history museum featuring photographs and artifacts from the Franks and others who lived in the house.
