Just across the North Loup River from Scotia, is Nebraska’s only Chalk Mine, chiseled into the base of Happy Jack’s Peak. This elevated peak was favored by Ft. Hartsuff army scouts in their efforts to keep track of the Sioux Indians.
Today, golfers “Putt Off the Peak”, trying for prize money.
Each October the Chalk Mine becomes a “Haunting” place to behold. Local residents take pride in the Chalk Block buildings that still adorn our main street.
