Steampunk Society of Nebraska

The word "Nebraska" inevitably conjures up images of cornfields, feedlots, football and (more recently) Lady Gaga wearing a mermaid fin while floating in a watering trough. Most of this, aside from the Lady Gaga bit, is usually fairly accurate, but would you be surprised to know that Nebraska is also home to a vibrant steampunk community? The Steampunk Society of Nebraska currently boasts just over 900 members, one of them being Melissa Ann Conroy herself. The SSON is an active group, hosting everything from steampunk teas to antiquing to attenting conventions together. Check out our Facebook page to see some Nebraska-style steampunk!

Check out a lively and intellectual discussion about SFCs that Melissa generated on The Steampunk Empire and also be sure to check out this article on the topic.
