North Loup, NE

North Loup, NE
“The Popcorn Capital of Nebraska” 

In the late 1800’s most area farmers found that popcorn was a profitable crop to plant.

In 1901, North Loup businesses started giving Free Popcorn to their customers. One hundred four years later, during the annual “Pop Corn Days” festival, this custom is continued, with all the free popcorn you can eat while you enjoy the entertainment.

North Loup was founded in 1872, by Rev. Oscar Babcock and his hearty band of Seventh Day Baptist.

Arnold, NE

Arnold, NE

Arnold is a village in Custer County. The population was 597 at the 2010 census. The village was named for George Arnold, a pioneer settler.

The first Sandhills Open Road Challenge was held in Arnold, Nebraska, in August 2001. Thirty-four enthusiastic drivers came from 17 states to participate in the first event of its kind ever held in Nebraska. The event now sells out its grid of 120 each year on the first day of registration with scores eagerly anticipating being selected from the events waiting list.

Thousands of spectators from Custer County and surrounding communities throng to Arnold each year to watch the shootout, parade, road race, and the crowd favorite–the burnout contest. Drivers from more than 40 states and Canada enjoy unrivaled hospitality from local inhabitants who open their homes to lodge upwards of half of all drivers and navigators. As one driver proclaimed loudly at the 2008 SORC barbeque, “Nobody does it like Arnold!”

Cairo, NE

Cairo, NE 
“Pronounced ‘Care-oh’”

Established in 1886, legend says that a survey engineer exclaimed,  “It looks just like a desert and should be called Cairo”, referring to its counterpart in Egypt.   The company clerk followed through with the theme of naming the streets appropriately:  Egypt, Berber, Thebe, Nubia, Medina, Suez, Said, Mecca and Nile.

A year after being established, Cairo had a thriving main street and 200 citizens.   Now, 118 years later, Cairo’s population is 790 citizens.    Look for our new Welcome Camel on North Hwy 11, donated by Mr. Eddie Baach.
