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.

Grand Island, NE

Grand Island, NE

In the mid-1800’s a plan came to light to develop a city along the Platte River Road, in hopes that its’ central location would be ideal for the relocation of the nation’s capitol from Washington D.C.

In 1857, the banking house of Chubb Brothers & Barrows from Davenport Iowa financed an expedition of 35 German immigrants, with instructions to choose their settlement’s location within an area named by French fur traders as “La Grande Isle”, an island in the Platte River.

By Sept 1857, log houses had been constructed from ash, elm and cottonwood timber. Their dream, of course, never became reality, but our German heritage remains strong.
