After La Salle claimed much of the region in1682, France controlled the territory for a time and then ceded it to Spain. The area was sold back to France and then to the United States in 1803 as part of the Louisiana Purchase. It was explored by Lewis and Clark soon afterward. Trails through Nebraska to the West led to the gradual settlement of the region. The state was formed from the Nebraska Territory, created in 1834. In 1937 Nebraska become the only state with a unicameral legislature.
