Welcome to The Moonstone Bookstore and Emporium. We commenced our operations on May 26, 2018. Our web page includes our upcoming events, an online component of our bookstore’s inventory, a history of our bookstore, a blog and other interesting features. We have a Facebook page where you can see what is happening at the Moonstone as we post regularly. We also offer specials and updates about new acquisitions to our collections.
Come and visit us here in Red Cloud, the heart of Willa Cather country and the source of inspiration for so many of her Nebraska writings. We are also home to other historic events that have taken place here or nearby including a visit by Zebulon Pike during his explorations of the West in 1806, and the former park where many early baseball stars played before heading to the majors including Hall of Famers Dazzy Vance and Cy Young. Just to the east of Red Cloud was a large Pawnee Indian village, a site which is designated as a National Historic Landmark. Henry Obitz, a professional golfer who designed the Red Cloud Golf Course was a Red Cloud resident.
So make it a day, come and visit Red Cloud, America’s most famous small town.
