American author Willa Cather lived in Red Cloud, NE starting in 1884 at the age of nine. She used the town for several settings in her novels (including Black Hawk in My Ántonia).

Since then, twenty buildings in Red Cloud have been added to the National Historic Register because of their connection to the work of the Pulitzer Prize-winning writer, the largest such distinction for any American author.
