Buffalo Bill Mess

By  | 

The superintendent of a landmark vandalized over the weekend says several people have been arrested in the case.

The vandalism was irreplaceable antiques destroyed at the Buffalo Bill Home near North Platte.

Vandals smashed windows, display cases, several antique and commemorative china dishes and an antique chandelier.

Home superintendent Steve Kemper says the chandelier's glass was original, even bearing the crafter's whittle marks, and cannot be replaced.

Damage is estimated at more than $1,500.

Kemper says insurance and a Good Foundation Account will cover most of the costs. He said the hunt will then begin to replace some of the antiques.
