內布拉斯加源自一印地安字,意為「平坦的水」,這個名字是用來形容穿越該州的普拉特河(Platte River)。內布拉斯加地區於1854年形成,與堪薩斯州一區成立是同一年。1867年時,才被准許加入聯邦,成為美國第37州。剝殼機誕生前,內布拉斯加採收玉米(該州的主要產物) 的主要方法為用手剝除玉蜀黍的外殼,故其別名為「剝玉米殼人之州」(Cornhusker State)。內布拉斯加的另一個小名為「牛肉州」(Beef State),是代表它的另一個主要出產品為牛。自1880年代以來,奧馬哈市(Omaha)一直是主要的肉類工業中心。雖然奧馬哈市是該地區的重要都市,但林肯市(Lincoln:紀念美國第16屆總統)才是內布拉斯加的首府;該州州花為金棒花。


Nebraska gets its name from an Indian word meaning "flat water" after the Platte River that flows through the state. The Nebraska Territory was formed in 1854 at the same time as the Kansas Territory. Nebraska was admitted into the Union in 1867 as the 37th state. Its nickname, "Cornhusker State," refers to the way that corn (a leading product of the state) was commonly harvested, "husking" it by hand, before the invention of husking machinery. Another nickname, the "Beef State," refers to one of Nebraska's main industries, cattle. Omaha has been a major meatpacking center since the 1880s. Although Omaha was the territorial capital, Lincoln, named in honor of the 16th president, is the state capital. The flower is the goldenrod.
